With sources saying the Falcons won't give receiver Julio Jones a contract extension this season, it remains to be seen if he reports on time to training camp next week.
Bomani Jones is joined by the legend Michael Vick to discuss playing in the American Flag Football League (0:54), how his skillset would fit in the modern game (7:17), the difficulties when he returned to the NFL and found himself become a starter again (10:51) as well as the insights he has on young QB's like Lamar Jackson (14:34). Plus, his reply when people think they can beat him in a footrace and more (24:35)!
These are the league's biggest deals -- adjusted for position -- that most exceed market value. Welcome to the list, Jimmy Garoppolo.
Some veteran NFL referees don't see the revamped catch rule as a big change for games because they believe they've already been calling catches the new way.
In a division with three Super Bowl hopefuls, picking a winner is a long shot, but improving defenses in Atlanta and New Orleans give them a leg up.
It's easy to find MVP candidates in this division, but Atlanta WR Julio Jones has the talent and supporting cast to deliver a special season.
The tension in Tampa Bay has likely reached the point where something has to give (or someone has to go) if the Bucs miss the playoffs again.
Which team has the top offensive firepower? We ranked all 32. Just running backs and pass-catchers -- no quarterbacks, linemen or coordinators allowed.
The Saints almost have the market cornered on future stars in this division, and Alvin Kamara leads the pack following an electric rookie season.
The NFC South defensive fronts will feature several new faces as teams beefed up their lines to combat the division's dominant quarterbacks.
The rookie running back with the given name Romarius became Ito because a cousin thought he resembled the famous O.J. Simpson trial judge as a baby.
Many NFL players and teams made efforts behind the scenes to go beyond taking a knee during the anthem, working together to make a positive impact.
Rather than planning a reaction to the NFL's new anthem policy, the Falcons have focused their efforts on contributing in the community.
The Falcons have plenty of explosive playmakers, but their attack is at its best when their No. 1 receiver is healthy and producing big numbers.
Elle Duncan & Jason Fitz are joined by legendary music producers "Organized Noize" Rico Wade, Ray Murray and Sleepy Brown to discuss their historic career, love for the Falcons, and if we will be getting another Outkast album (10:38). Then we announce the #ElleandFitzTalkinMusic artist of the week (43:20).
Other than Antonio, Odell and Julio, how many true No. 1 WRs are there in the NFL? We rate each team's, from true No. 1s to committee attacks.
The Steelers All-Pro has the numbers, but Odell Beckham Jr. and Julio Jones are among the elite alternatives.
The Falcons signed a one-year deal with safety Ron Parker to add depth at the position. Parker spent the last five seasons with the Chiefs.

Falcons add veteran depth at safety in signing Ron Parker to a one-year contract. Parker last played for the Kansas City Chiefs and is familiar with the Falcons' system after spending time with the Seattle Seahawks. Also was with the Raiders and Panthers. Parker listed as a free safety but Falcons very happy with starter Ricardo Allen, who is expected to get a contract extension before the season after signing RFA tender. Keanu Neal is a rising star at strong safety. Depth again is key.
With a humble attitude, "great work ethic" and attention to detail, the first-round draft pick has quickly endeared himself to his new teammates.
