The Atlanta Falcons have signed CB Ricardo Allen, FS Sean Baker, OG Harland Gunn, OL Terren Jones, WR Bernard Reedy, DL Travian Robertson, LB Jacques Smith and RB Jerome Smith to the practice squad.

Footballguys view: Reedy has the explosiveness to make defenders miss in the open field. He can work well on underneath routes or as a return man.

The Atlanta Falcons released LB Yawin Smallwood Friday, Aug. 29.

  Falcons | Strong outing for T.J. Yates    Fri Aug 29, 03:23 AM

Atlanta Falcons QB T.J. Yates threw for two touchdowns and 243 yards in his team's 24-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: Still better than anyone Houston has. Yates has found a new home in Atlanta, and he had a strong showing in the final preseason game as he tries to win the primary backup job behind Matt Ryan.

  Falcons | Big game for Devonta Freeman     Thu Aug 28, 11:07 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman had 12 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown and five catches for 45 yards during the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Message! Freeman is a talented rookie runner who reminds some in the scouting community of Maurice Jones-Drew. We like him as a late-round flier at running back. Steven Jackson is nearly done and Jacquizz Rodgers is an okay change-of-pace back at best. Freeman can make plays as a runner and receiver out of the backfield, and this Falcons offense needs weapons outside of Julio Jones and Roddy White.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson to play?    Thu Aug 28, 04:58 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could play a few snaps tonight to test out his injured hamstring, according to ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure.

Footballguys view: The Falcons probably want to get him a few snaps to warm up for the season. We've got Jackson as a RB3 right now, though he has upside. We're concerned with his offense line in the wake of the injury to Sam Baker, as they lack a legitimate right tackle and of course, age is a concern with Jackson. He's got some fuel left in the tank, but not enough to risk a really high pick on.

  Falcons | Three competing for RT job    Thu Aug 28, 02:04 PM

Atlanta Falcons OTs Lamar Holmes, Gabe Carimi and Ryan Schraeder are all candidates for the starting right tackle job. Holmes appears to be the favorite for the job because of his experience.

Footballguys view: With Baker gone, the team was able to move Jake Matthews to left tackle (likely the long term plan anyway) but that left a big hole on the right side. They need to get that settled before Week 1 or it could be a tough season.

  Falcons | Gabe Carimi to play Thursday    Tue Aug 26, 11:29 PM

Atlanta Falcons OT Gabe Carimi (ankle) practiced for the second day in a row Tuesday, Aug. 26, and will play multiple positions in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Mike Smith.

  Falcons | Want power ground game    Tue Aug 26, 10:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers was stopped on a fourth-and-1 run during the team's third preseason game, and heading into the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, head coach Mike Smith said he wants to emphasize being able to run the ball effectively in obvious running situations.

Footballguys view: Rodgers is not the back for this situation. Jason Snelling is gone, and rookie Devonta Freeman is built more like Rodgers than a power back. Steven Jackson will be set up to get goal line carries and have the most weekly value as long as he is on the field.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson could play    Mon Aug 25, 04:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) could receive some playing time in the final preseason game, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Footballguys view: Jackson could play, but how effective can he be? His best days are far behind him, and fantasy owners need to look at rookie Devonta Freeman. We could see Freeman take over in the backfield at some point this season if Jackson gets banged up (again) or just doesn't look good. Jackson is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson practicing    Mon Aug 25, 03:06 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 25.

Footballguys view: Jackson is near the end of his career. Fantasy owners should not be relying on him to contribute much this year. The Falcons defense is terrible, so the offense will have to play in many a shootout. We're expecting rookie RB Devonta Freeman to break out at some point this season.

Atlanta Falcons LB Marquis Spruill (knee) was placed on Injured Reserve. WR Drew Davis (foot) and SS Zeke Motta (neck) were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are a bit thin at wide receiver with the injury to Davis. We could see a bit more of Devin Hester as a receiver.

The Atlanta Falcons signed free-agent WR Eric Weems (Bears) Thursday, Aug. 21. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Weems is just a special teams guy and that's it. He has no fantasy value unless you get points for returns.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson remains out    Thu Aug 21, 11:43 AM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is not participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: Jackson had been able to stay healthy until he missed a single game last year. At 31, you start to be a bit concerned about bumps and bruises on a back, as they tend to linger. Reports are that he should be practicing again shortly and is on track for Week 1, so we don't expect him to drop below the low-end RB3 he's currently rated at.

  Falcons | Steven Jackson not practicing    Tue Aug 19, 01:29 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is not participating in practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: Jackson has been out of action this summer, and there's no guarantee he'll play many games this year, but when he starts for the Falcons he'll have RB2 value in that week. He still has value as a bench RB or lead back in a RB2BC in the seventh or later.

  Falcons | Sam Baker to IR, sign OT    Mon Aug 18, 03:53 PM

The Atlanta Falcons placed OT Sam Baker (knee) on Reserve/Injured with a torn patellar tendon and signed free-agent OT Pat McQuistan (Titans) to an undisclosed deal Monday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Losing Baker means that rookie Jake Matthews will slide over to play left tackle for the Falcons. McQuistan is a borderline talent who could struggle to make the team.

  Falcons | Jake Matthews moves to left side    Mon Aug 18, 01:30 PM

The Atlanta Falcons have moved OT Jake Matthews to left tackle because of the season-ending injury to OT Sam Baker (knee). Matthews said he is comfortable playing either tackle spot.

Footballguys view: Matthews can be a better left tackle than Baker was--eventually. There will be a bit of a learning curve for the youngster.

  Falcons | Three could compete for RT job    Sun Aug 17, 08:05 PM

Atlanta Falcons OTs Lamar Holmes, Ryan Schraeder and Gabe Carimi could compete for the starting right tackle job if OT Jake Matthews moves to left tackle.

Footballguys view: No matter how you cut it, one of the players is going to be the weak link in the Falcons offensive line. Sam Baker wasn't a worldbeater, but he was at least experienced. This isn't a major blow for the Atlanta offense, but it's nothing to dismiss.

   Falcons | Sam Baker injury update    Sun Aug 17, 09:28 AM

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons OT Sam Baker (knee) suffered a torn patella tendon, according to the early diagnosis. If tests confirm that diagnosis, Baker would likely miss the entire 2014 season.

Footballguys view: Gabe Carimi or Lamar Holmes is going to be a major hole on the offensive line at right or left tackle if this is confirmed. It isn't like Matt Ryan's line was better last year, and he was without at least one of his top receivers at full speed for the entire season, but this has to diminish optimism about the Falcons offense.

  Falcons | Sam Baker injury could be serious    Sat Aug 16, 09:42 PM

Atlanta Falcons OT Sam Baker (knee) could not put weight on his right leg and had to be carted off the field during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Baker is no stud left tackle and the Falcons luckily spent their #6 pick on a pro-ready tackle in Jake Matthews, but this injury would put Gabe Carimi or Lamar Holmes in the lineup if it's serious. Certainly not a good development for Matt Ryan or the Falcons running game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot), who expects to play in the team's preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 16, said he is feeling 100 percent healthy. Jones fractured his right foot Oct. 7 of last season. The Falcons plan to be cautious with him in the preseason, and he's likely to play just one series Saturday. Jones didn't play in last week's game and has been on a practice schedule of one day on and one day off.
