Free agent veteran RB Joique Bell said he has never been an “injury prone player” and is waiting for another chance in the NFL.
“I’ve never been an injury prone player. I feel better than I have in a long time, physically. Just waiting on the call,” said Bell, via SiriusXM NFL Radio.
According to team owner Arthur Blank, the Falcons won’t be one-year wonders and are instead focused on being a “sustainably winning organization.”
“I think the most important thing about last year was it was a great honor playing in the Super Bowl. It was great honor having the wonderful season that we did for our franchise but to me what I take away for me personally the greatest honor from last year is that I feel now that we have what I’ve envisioned for many years is to be a sustainably winning organization,” Blank said, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“I love our head coach. I love our general manager. I love our coaches, coordinators, and whole personnel department. I love a lot of the talent that we have, all the talent that we have. … I think we’re in a great position. I look forward to this year and many years to come. It’s not about a one-trick pony or one-year wonder. It’s about creating a sustainably winning organization. And we’ve done that.”
- Rich Cimini considers Leonard Williams, Steve McLendon, and Muhammad Wilkerson to be the Jets’ projected starters in their base defense.

- Cimini has Mike Pennel and Anthony Johnson on the roster bubble entering training camp.
- As for Richardson, Cimini writes that chances are he’ll remain on the trading block in the coming months. However, he considers it a “long shot” that the Jets will find an interested team in trading for Richardson.
