The Falcons announced the hiring of Lionel Vital as the team’s new assistant director of player personnel. Vital was among candidates the Falcons interviewed following the draft to beef up their front office. Last week the Falcons hired former Indianapolis Colts scout David Caldwell as the team’s new director of college scouting.
Vital has previous working experience with Dimitroff, having spent a few years working closely together with each other in the New England Patriots organization. Vital’s exact responsibilities in his new role with the Falcons has yet to be specified.
