WATCH: Falcons Duke Riley, Robert Alford perform some crazy training drills in sand

Posted Jul 6, 2017

Training camp might be 20 days away, but a few Falcons players are using the time to train hard.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- With training camp set to kick off in just 20 days, you’d think most Falcons players are off on an exotic vacation, maybe sipping some piña coladas on a beach somewhere, right?

Well, Robert Alford, Duke Riley and Deion Jones are definitely spending some quality time in the sand, but it hardly looks like a vacation (much to the delight of Falcons fans everywhere).

First, check out this insane drill Mathis is putting himself through, catching tennis balls and running through pylons while wearing body weights.

And then here’s Riley and Jones training with the Buccaneers’ Kwon Alexander.

If you’re a Falcons fan and that doesn’t get you pumped for training camp and the 2017 season, you might want to check your pulse.
