Once again, the media had access to today’s practices on the fifth day of the Falcons OTAs. So here’s what we came away with:
- Steven Jackson is enjoying learning the ropes of the Falcons offense.
- Roddy White who skipped OTAs last week, was present at Wednesday’s voluntary practices.
- The same starting five as last week, featuring Sam Baker at left tackle, Justin Blalock at left guard, Peter Konz at center, Garrett Reynolds at right guard, and Mike Johnson at right tackle, continues to get first team reps. But we’re now hearing that Joe Hawley is pushing Konz at center.
- The Falcons are projected to be roughly $6.4 million under the 2013 salary cap, according to several sources, Pat Yasinskas being the latest. That number is thanks to the $4.5 million that came off the books on June 2 due to Tyson Clabo’s release.
- Kroy Biermann is expecting his third child with reality TV’s Kim Zolciak. Just nine months after their second child, boy Kash Kade was born. This has nothing to do with offseason practices, but I just wanted to say Kroy clearly doesn’t mess around. He’s all business when it comes to procreation. This next child will be Zolciak’s fifth.
