ATLANTA – For the Falcons’ rookie class, Sunday’s 2018 AT&T Training Camp practice at Mercedes-Benz Stadium is anything but standard.
It is the first time that the team’s rookies have suited up and taken the field at the stadium, and there is the added energy of having 60,000 fans in the seats watching their every move. For head coach Dan Quinn, this offers a great opportunity to see how some of the first-year players respond to this moment.
“Every time I’m on the field with the rookies I’m always watching them, because there’s always something to evaluate,” Quinn said. “To have under, let’s call it, the watchful eye of 60,000 and see how they perform, yeah, I’m definitely looking for that. Are they going to stay within the system and true to what we’re saying or will the external forces have an impact?”
