NFC Notes: Falcons, Packers, Vikings


Falcons GM Matt Ryan mentioned during an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio that their offense is way ahead of where the unit was at this time last year.

“I think it’s huge,” Ryan said. “Continuity in this league is sometimes hard to come by. There’s lots of change, but going into year two with Sark, his comfort level with our personnel, how to utilize guys and from a players’ standpoint, our comfort level with him, what he’s going to call in certain situations, I think we’re way ahead of where we were last year.

“And I think that’s going to benefit us when we get into those in-game situations of having a comfort level of what to expect in those type of situations. So it’s going to be huge for us this year.”


  • An NFL personnel executive previously told Rob Demovsky that the Packers could have traded QB Brett Hundley for a fourth-round pick last year. However, after seeing Hundley fill in for Aaron Rodgers, the executive said Hundley has no trade value.
  • The Packers traded for DeShone Kizer this offseason so it will be interesting to see who Green Bay goes with as their backup quarterback.


Vikings HC Mike Zimmer said veteran WR Kendall Wright could be inactive on gameday, given that he isn’t a special teams contributor.

Probably won’t be dressed on game day,” Zimmer said, via Chris Tomasson. “I can’t dress 6 WRs on game day and they don’t help us on special teams.

  • The Vikings have hired Nick Rallis as the team’s new defensive quality control coach. (Chris Tomasson)
