The first weekend of 2015 XFINITY Atlanta Falcons Training Camp started on Saturday at Falcons headquarters in Flowery Branch. The players hit the field while fans watched from the hill.
The Falcons wrapped up the second day of XFINITY® Training Camp in front of a large crowd of fans Saturday morning.
Although the team will not be in full-pads until Monday's practice, head coach Dan Quinn showed excitement about what he has seen thus far.
While implementing a new high-tempo practice style, the energetic coach puts his players in different situations that allows him to make specific evaluations.
When asked who the biggest surprise of camp has been, Quinn didn't just mention one or two names. Instead, he changed the format of the question to key-in on a group of people that he was excited to see out on the practice fields.
"I think it's great to have some of the guys who have been injured so not necessarily a surprise, but, it's so nice to see Jake Matthews, Joe Hawley, Pete Konz and Brooks Reed and some of the guys who missed such a big portion of our OTA's," Quinn said. "To have some of those guys back and playing, I knew how good some of those guys were from watching tape, but I didn't have a chance to be out on the field with them. So, I think the biggest surprise is not necessarily a surprise, but having some of back."
