Falcons hold ‘virtual’ team meeting at start of offseason program

The Falcons held a virtual team meeting Monday on what would have been the first day of the offseason training program.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn requires that players have their cameras turned on so the players will not get to hide behind their icons.

He said the team will focus on customized learning when teaching and count on the players to motivate one another during their workouts.

“We have really good coaches and a coaching staff that is really adapt at pressing and holding these players accountable during the virtual time,” general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “I understand that it’s not mandatory, but I do understand that we have a lot of players champing at the bit to learn.”
