Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff: Sarkisian, Ryan 'hitting it off’

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff likes what he sees so far between offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian and quarterback Matt Ryan.

Sarkisian was hired in February after former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan left to be the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

When asked what he thought of Sarkisian’s relationship with Ryan on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” on Thursday, Dimitroff said Sarkisian and Ryan share much of the same vision for the Falcons.

"To have Steve Sarkisian come in, his personality is very creative. He's very bright,” Dimitroff said. “He's got a personality that mixes very well with the players and most importantly at the top. He and Matt Ryan are hitting it off very, very well and I'm really excited to hear that as far as the communication and how they see the game and how they see the game going forward with this team."

Dimitroff also discussed his relationship with coach Dan Quinn, the Falcons’ Super Bowl 51 rematch against the New England Patriots and Dimitroff’s comments about not “looking for angels” in the 2017 NFL Draft
