According to Ian Rapoport, Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff will sit down with owner Arthur Blank after the season is out to hear his plan for the franchise moving forward.
Rapoport mentions that no decision regarding Dimitroff’s future with the team has been made at this point in time, but there’s still a chance he could return in 2016.
While there’s no question that the team has a talent deficiency in regards to their roster, Dimitroff still may not take the fall for this, according to Rapoport.
“Arthur Blank is going to sit down after the season and discuss his status, he’s not going to do any thinking about during the season,” Rapoport said. “I talked to coaches on that staff, they do believe there is a talent deficiency on that team, but don’t assume that Dimitroff is out after this year: Dan Quinn and him do have a very good working relationship.”
Dimitroff has reportedly been on the hot seat for a few years now, and given the lack of improvement and the limited talent on the team’s roster, it’s not surprising to hear that this could be it for him in Atlanta.
However, it appears as though Dimitroff stands a chance of retaining his job for at least another season.
