“He’s ahead of schedule,” said Bradham, via SiriusXM NFL Radio. “Coming off an ACL to be where he’s at, already running, making great moves in the pocket like he was before……I mean this is his offense, everybody knows that.”
Falcons RB Tevin Coleman, who is in the final year of his rookie contract, says the team is planning to use him more in 2018.
“They are just going to use me more … lining up out wide and stuff,” Coleman said, via AltantaFalcons.com. “It’s going to be pretty fun.”
“Now, we want to make sure we are really featuring him and Devonta in as many ways as we can,” coach Dan Quinn said. “Splitting them outside, leaving them in the backfield, the amount of catches and touches that we can get for those guys, we know how explosive they are.”

He’s an excellent fit for us. I look back over the years, I don’t think we’ve had this much experience at TE in my time here.” (Wes Hodkiewicz)
