The Falcons’ stories to watch for this season

- What will happen without Julio Jones? During this offseason Julio Jones was sent to the Titans and his loss will be a huge blow to this offense.
- What’s the plan to improve one of the worst defenses in the league? Last season, Atlanta had the worst defense in yards allowed per game, and it also stood out for missing several leads in the fourth quarter.
- The impact of Kyle Pitts in his freshman year. With the No. 4 overall pick in the 2021 Draft, the Falcons selected Gators alumnus TE Kyle Pitts, who in 2020 received 770 yards and 12 touchdown passes in college football.
