Let’s take a look at the various tweets, articles, reports, news and rumors that surfaced from the first day of Atlanta Falcons training camp:

  • Falcons rookie offensive tackle Jake Matthews and linebacker Kroy Biermann were involved in some extracurricular activities early in camp:

  • Head coach Mike Smith failed to elaborate on the team’s prompt decision to waive Darius Johnson before the first practice this morning. Adds a bit of fuel to the fire that something happened behind the scenes over the past 24 hours that he’s not telling us.

  • The AJC provides video of Smith speaking to the media after practice.
  • Ex-Kansas City Chiefs teammates now turned Falcons teammates in defensive end Tyson Jackson and guard Jon Asamoah discussed their goals in Atlanta with AtlantaFalcons.com’s Reid Ferrin, including toughening up both sides of the line of scrimmage.
