Falcons' Julio Jones: Says recovery is still on track
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (toe) seemed to be moving around pretty well during a Wednesday appearance at the Georgia State Capitol, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Recovering from March 6 surgery to address a bunion, Jones was wearing a boot but didn't need crutches to walk. He said his foot feels good, and while he'll still miss the Falcons' offseason program, the 28-year-old wideout remain on track for training camp. With no crucial offseason additions or losses, the 2017 Atlanta offense should look very similar to the 2016 iteration.

Falcons' Soma Vainuku: Signs with Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vainuku signed a contract with the Falcons on Tuesday, Curtis Jackson of the team's official site reports.

An undrafted free agent out of USC, Vainuku signed with the Texans last offseason but failed to receive a spot on the 53-man roster. He'll compete with veteran Derrick Coleman for the starting fullback position this offseason.

Falcons' Derrick Coleman: Heading to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman signed a contract with the Falcons on Tuesday, Curtis Jackson of the team's official site reports.

Coleman last played for the Seahawks in 2015 as legal troubles prevented him from taking the field last season. He joins the Falcons alongside fullback Soma Vainuku, as the two will compete for a starting gig with the reigning NFC champions. In 31 games (seven starts) over three seasons with the Seahawks, Coleman recorded 11 receptions for 91 yards with two receiving touchdowns. He also rushed the ball 10 times for 35 yards.

Falcons' Hugh Thornton: Heading to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornton signed a contract with the Falcons on Tuesday, Alex Marvez of SportingNews.com reports.

Thornton spent the entirety of last season on injured reserve due to an ankle injury. Although he's struggled with injuries throughout his professional career, the 25-year-old will look to secure a reserve spot on Atlanta's offensive line.

Falcons' Dontari Poe: Heading to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poe agreed to terms on a one-year, $8 million contract with the Falcons on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Poe was one of the last big-ticket players available in free agency. The 6-3, 346 pound defensive tackle recorded a career-low 27 combined tackles in 16 games played last season, but his massive frame is still capable of wreaking havoc for opposing offenses. Atlanta was 26th in the NFL with 4.5 yards allowed per carry in 2016, so Poe will be welcomed as a boost to the Falcons' run defense as they try to make another push deep into the playoffs.
