Falcons Predicted to Shine Bright for Quinn

The Falcons' 2016 roster is constantly evolving and we've amassed all the players in one gallery that will be updated throughout the year

Still months away from the start of training camp for the 2015 season, NFL fans have likely already started making playoff predictions regarding their favorite team.

According to NFL Media research, every year since 1990, when the league adopted the 12-team format, the playoffs have included four new teams. During the past 10 seasons, that average climbed to more than five new teams per season.

A lot has transpired since the Falcons missed the playoffs last season, including the hiring of new head coach Dan Quinn, several new coaches and the following free agents:

DE Adrian Clayborn

OLB Justin Durant

OLB Brooks Reed

LB O'Brien Schofield

CB Phillip Adams

OL Jared Smith

G Mike Person

WR Leonard Hankerson

TE Tony Moeaki

TE Jacob Tamme

While the Falcons still have the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft and eight picks to continue adding talent and depth to their roster, NFL.com believes Atlanta can be playoff bound, thanks to star players like quarterback Matt Ryan, wide receiver Julio Jones and a defense keyed by Quinn's wisdom and experience.
