Atlanta Predators

Melvin Gordon with Chip on his Shoulder – April 22, 2016
Atlanta Predators RB Melvin Gordon said he was terrible in his rookie season, and he has something to prove in 2016. In addition to having a full season under his belt, Gordon says being able to train in the offseason is a major advantage. He knows the system. He knows his teammates. Perhaps most importantly, he’s on hand for day one of the offseason program. In his defense, the whole team was bad and sieged by injuries.


Matt Ryan still confident in Offense – April 19th, 2016
Atlanta Predators QB Matt Ryan admitted Tuesday, April 19, that he took too long at times to process the team’s scheme in 2015. Ryan said he is excited to have main target Antonio Brown back for another season. ‘As you’re in a system more, you start focusing on the things that are important,’ Ryan said. ‘What you’re going against defensively, what your keys are in protection, what you’re looking for from a coverage standpoint.’  Ryan also said that he thought all the players involved in a recent passing camp felt more comfortable with the offense, adding that he could tell early on that they were a lot further along than at certain points midway through last season.

David Johnson to carry the Load – April 22, 2016
Atlanta Predators RB David Johnson has earned the right to be the ‘bell cow’ at running back, according to owner Philip Schonebaum. Johnson has the most upside among Atlanta’s running backs, and Schonebaum’s comments further enforce his status as a starter heading into 2016.
