Falcons' Austin Hooper: Ready for larger role in Ryan-led offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said Hooper has grown "exponentially" this offseason, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official website reports.

Selected in the third round (No. 81 overall) of last year's draft, Hooper made the most of a limited role as a rookie, producing 10.0 yards per target, 14.3 yards per catch and three touchdowns on just 27 targets, with gains of 44, 42, 34 and 28 yards among his 19 receptions. He also scored in the Super Bowl, and with 33-year-old Jacob Tamme still unsigned, Hooper is the team's unquestioned No. 1 pass-catching option at tight end. The Falcons do seem to value the 6-foot-8, 265-pound Levine Toilolo as a run blocker, which could serve to limit Hooper's snaps on early downs.

Falcons' Martin Ifedi: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ifedi signed a contract with the Falcons on Thursday, Charles Odum of The Savannah Morning News reports.

Ifedi, who has spent time with the Falcons each of the past two seasons, was given a tryout on Tuesday and evidently performed well enough to earn a spot on the 90-man roster. However, he'll likely need to have an impressive training camp and preseason in order to survive final cuts in advance of Week 1.

Falcons' De'Vondre Campbell: Underwent offseason eye surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Campbell underwent Lasik eye surgery this offseason, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Campbell's eyesight has improved a noticeable amount heading into the 2017 season as he makes the switch to strongside linebacker. He'll be competing for snaps throughout camp behind Vic Beasley.

Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: May not be ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinley (shoulder) may not be ready for the start of training camp, Vaugn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

According to Falcons coach Dan Quinn, there's a chance that McKinley won't be full-go during the early stages of training camp as he continues to rehab from pre-draft shoulder surgery. McKinley hasn't been with the team through OTAs or minicamp as he finishes up his last semester at UCLA, so he could be a bit behind in the competition for a Week 1 starting spot at outside linebacker.
