Dale Zanine-USA TODAY SportsOBrien Schofield has worked closely with Dan Quinn to improve his game

I’ve collected and collated all the major headlines that emerged from teh second day of practices in the Atlanta Falcons’ 2015 training camp. You can check out all the news and headlines that came out of the first day of camp by clicking here.

Quinn’s Teaching

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn worked closely with the pass-rushers. Quinn made his bones in the NFL as a defensive line coach and has taken a hands on approach to helping improve the Falcons’ lackluster pass rush.

Jones and Trufant Go Head to Head

Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones had his ankle re-tape during practice yesterday but showed no worse for wear today. However cornerback Desmond Trufant got the better of him and Matt Ryan at one point.

Rookie Coleman Gets Promoted

Running back Tevin Coleman got first-team work today. He did split some reps there with Devonta Freeman, who got the bulk of the starters’ work on the first day of camp. After practice, Quinn told reporters that switching up reps and the depth chart this early in camp is a tool for evaluation rather than a true indicator of how players stand.

Veteran Asamoah Gets Demoted

Starter Jon Asamoah was relegated to the second team today at right guard, with Chris Chester getting starting reps there. Asamoah was nursing an injured left ankle throughout the offseason.

Allen Settling In at Safety

Ricardo Allen is settling in at the starting free safety position.

Gunn Released; Burton signed

The Atlanta Falcons announced the signing of offensive lineman Pierce Burton and released guard Harland Gunn to make room.
