Julio Jones climbs higher up #NFLRank

After cracking the top 20 a year ago, Jones went a step further and entered the hallowed top 10. Only one wide receiver finished higher, and we think you know who that is. #NFLRank: 25-1

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons done with light practice. Still a lot of first team work together with rookies DeVondre Campbell and Deion Jones at inside linebackers. I think there's no doubt Campbell will start opening day. We'll see about Jones, but Paul Worrilow has the mental edge in middle. Vic Beasley Jr. had some rushes today where he fully extended his right arm to block the pass, so a good indication that sprained AC joint in shoulder isn't too concerning. Devonta Freeman took a fall during 11 on 11 run drills but jogged it off. And former Colts Jacob Tamme and Sergio Brown had a little pushing match after Brown knocked the ball from Tamme down the field.

WR Justin Hardy, banged up during practice, got right ankle heavily taped. K Matt Bryant (muscle tightness) not on the field while S Kemal Ishmael (shoulder) and RB Terron Ward (ankle) ran sprints on side.

Clayton: Matt Ryan got snubbed

Ryan, the 69th-ranked player on last year's list, had a rough 2015 campaign with just 21 TDs and 15 INTs. But as a Tier 2 QB, he should still be in the top 100, John Clayton writes. #NFLRank snubs (Insider)

Alex Mack is a huge addition for Atlanta

According to our top 100, Mack was the second-best player to change teams this offseason, behind only Josh Norman. In addition to Mack, one other Falcon is featured in today's installment. #NFLRank: Nos. 51-100

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said he heard back from the NFL and it was determined that the blindside block by Browns LB Tank Carder on Falcons P Matt Bosher was legal. NFL source told ESPN Friday the hit was legal due to no contact to the head/neck area.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons OLB Vic Beasley Jr. (shoulder) practiced today but was limited. P Matt Bosher (chest) and CB CJ Goodwin (hamstring) also practiced. RB Terron Ward (ankle) and S Kemal Ishmael (shoulder) did drills on a side field. K Matt Bryant (muscle tightness) was held out again as recently re-signed vet K Shayne Graham kicked at practice.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Looks like Falcons P Matt Bosher is on pace to play Thursday night coming off chest injury after punishing hit from Browns LB Tank Carder. Team is not signing veteran P Brandon Fields after workout because of optimism regarding Bosher's status. Falcons return to practice today at 1:30 p.m.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

Falcons bring back veteran kicker Shayne Graham and release undrafted rookie kicker Nick Rose, who missed badly against the Browns Thursday night. Kicker Matt Bryant sidelined with muscle tightness. Graham filled in for an injured Bryant last season. Falcons also sign safety Sergio Brown from Notre Dame who played with the Patriots, Colts, and Jaguars.

Vaughn McClure ESPN Staff Writer 

NFL source tells me Browns LB Tank Carder's hit on Falcons punter Matt Bosher was determined to be a legal hit. It was a blindside block because the contact was above the waist. It was legal because Carder did not make contact to the head/neck area.
