Atlanta Falcons Roster 2020 Atlanta Falcons Roster

0-1, 2nd NFC South

@ DAL

5:00 pm GMT , 9/20

It was a give and take offseason for the Atlanta Falcons as they saw names like Devonta Freeman, Austin Hooper, De’Vondre Campbell, and Desmond Trufant all head elsewhere. They brought in Todd Gurley, Hayden Hurst, Dante Fowler, and A.J. Terrell from free agency and the draft. There is a chance this was the right move for the Falcons, but we will have to see. The defense has failed to stay healthy and same goes for the offensive line. Atlanta has tried to beef up their offensive line over the last two off-seasons but still need some depth there.

Top Falcons Roster Questions of 2020

FAQ

The Falcons have finished 7-9 in each of the past two seasons, which is a tough decline from the prior two years which saw them make the playoffs, with a Super Bowl appearance at the end of the 2016 season being the highlight. Atlanta is buoyed by Matt Ryan, a former MVP winner and one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and Julio Jones, who's lowest receiving yardage total over the past six seasons was 1,394 yards. The Falcons also feature the former Offensive Player of the Year in Todd Gurley, who was signed over the offseason. Young players like Calvin Ridley, Hayden Hurst, and Russell Gage should also support this offense. On defense, the Falcons don't have quite the same level of talent, but the draft day additions of A.J. Terrell and Marlon Davidson should help in that regard. Free agency defensive line additions in Dante Fowler, Tyeler Davidson, and Charles Harris should bolster a defensive line that features Grady Jarrett, one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL. The Falcons may not have Super Bowl upside, but they'll be hoping for a return to the playoffs in what could be a make-or-break year for head coach Dan Quinn.

Who is the Highest Paid Falcons Player?

The Falcons' highest-paid player heading into this season is Julio Jones with a $20.4 million cap hit. Julio is perhaps the best wide receiver in the NFL and is likely a future Hall of Famer as he has the 25th-most receiving yards in NFL history and is still just 31 years old.

Who Owns the Atlanta Falcons?

The current owner of the Atlanta Falcons is Arthur Blank who acquired the team in 2002. He is also the co-founder of Home Depot and the founder of Atlanta FC, an expansion MLS team. Blank's highlight as the Falcons' owner was their NFC Championship in 2016.

Who Is the Falcons Head Coach?

Dan Quinn is entering his sixth season as the Falcons' head coach and has compiled a 43-37 record throughout his time with the team, making the playoffs in two of five seasons. He was previously the defensive coordinator for the Seahawks' team that won the Super Bowl in 2014.

How Much Cap Space do the Falcons Have?

The Falcons currently have just over $11 million in available salary-cap space heading into this season, which is the 11th-least in the NFL. The team has an overwhelming $17 million in dead cap money still owed to former players and is likely overpaying a handful of players.

Who Will Replace Austin Hooper in the Falcons Offense?

Austin Hooper had 75 receptions for 787 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, but he joined the Browns in free agency. He'll be replaced by offseason trade acquisition Hayden Hurst, a former first-round pick at tight end by the Baltimore Ravens. Hurst has tons of fantasy upside for this season.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Falcons?

Heading into the 2020 season, the youngest player on the Falcons' roster is first-round rookie cornerback A.J. Terrell at 21 years old. Terrell played an important role in the Clemson secondary for three seasons, including as a starter on the 2018 national championship-winning side.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Falcons?

Currently, the oldest player on the Falcons' roster is backup quarterback Matt Schaub who is 39 years old. Starting quarterback Matt Ryan is 35 and is the second-oldest player on the roster. The oldest non-quarterback on the roster is Alex Mack who is 34 and is the team's starting center.
