Ricardo Allen began listing the weapons on the Atlanta Falcons‘ offense and shook his head.

Wide receivers Julio Jones Browns Cheap Jerseys , Mohamed Sanu and Calvin Ridley. Running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Quarterback Matt Ryan.

The safety said facing those playmakers is like a bad dream he must revisit every practice. But Allen also smiled because that’s good news for Atlanta’s 2018 outlook.

”Oh, man, you’ve got Julio, you’ve got Sanu, you’ve got Ridley on the field at the same time and you’ve got those running backs,” Allen said Saturday. ”Who do you match up against? Who do you put your best players on? It’s like a matchup nightmare.”

The front office has taken action to make those playmakers happy – and safe.

Ryan has a new five-year, $150 million contract extension. Jones was given an adjustment to his five-year, $71.5 million contract and a promise the deal will be renegotiated after the season. Left tackle Jake Matthews agreed to five-year, $75 million extension on Friday, and the team’s top offseason acquisition was right guard Brandon Fusco, adding more stability to the offensive line.

Ridley, a wide receiver from Alabama, was the team’s first-round draft pick .

Ryan is 33. Jones is 29. Coleman can be a free agent after the season. The Falcons are attempting to seize this opportunity to take full advantage of this offense – most of the unit led the league in scoring two years ago.

”To go up against it every day http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-connor-williams-jersey , I personally don’t think any other offense that has this many weapons from sideline to sideline to give us that much pressure,” Allen said. ”Then you’ve got Matty Ice out there putting the ball anywhere he can. It’s a hard matchup and every day is a challenge and that’s a good thing.”

The Falcons led the league with 33.8 points a game in their 2016 Super Bowl season with former coordinator Kyle Shanahan, now San Francisco’s coach, in charge of the offense. In Steve Sarkasian’s 2017 debut as offensive coordinator, Atlanta fell back to 15th in scoring, at 22.1 points per game.

Center Alex Mack says the Falcons are starting faster in their second year with Sarkasian.

”I just see it as a way to start fast and build,” Mack said Saturday. ”As an offense in training camp, you can start at a more advanced point than you started the year before, so you can get into the details and work on the little things and be really on the same page.”

The Falcons opened training camp with Freeman and Jones at full health.

Jones played every game but dealt with a long list of injuries last season. Freeman missed two games with his second concussion of the year, including one last preseason, and also was slowed by a knee injury at the end of the season.

”It is awesome to see Free back, feeling like himself,” coach Dan Quinn said. ”His aggressive nature always comes out and he’s off to a great start.”

Quinn said the familiarity that comes with the offense’s second season with Sarkasian is crucial.

”I think anytime you’re around guys for more than a year Blake Martinez Jersey Elite , he has such a clear vision of what guys can do,” Quinn said. ”As small as that may sound to you, it’s a big deal.”

NOTES: DE Takkarist McKinley left practice with an apparent right shoulder injury. He has had surgeries on both shoulders the last two years. Quinn said Saturday’s injury is not believed to be serious. … The Falcons have sold all 60,000 tickets, at $5 each, for their practice at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday. It will be the team’s first practice in pads.




Police acknowledged Tuesday that a woman was assaulted during a home invasion at a suburban Atlanta house owned by NFL star LeSean McCoy, hours after graphic posts on social media accused the Buffalo Bills running back of bloodying his former girlfriend.

One female was treated and released from the hospital, while another sustained a minor injury during a targeted invasion early Tuesday, Milton police said in a release responding to requests by The Associated Press.

McCoy denied allegations posted on social media earlier in the day accusing him of hurting his former girlfriend.

"For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false," McCoy said in a statement released on two of his social media accounts. "Further more, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months."

McCoy was responding to an Instagram post from a person who said she is friends with the injured woman. The post showed a graphic photo of the former girlfriend and accused McCoy of physically abusing her, his son and his dog Broncos Isaac Yiadom Jersey , as well as injecting steroids.

The woman who posted the accusations and the ex-girlfriend have not responded to messages left by The Associated Press, though both Instagram accounts showed pictures of the women together in London during a music festival, with comments on each other's posts. The AP generally does not identify people who may have been victims of abuse.

Police said it's not clear how many suspects were involved, but one demanded specific items from one of the women in the home.

Police spokesman Charles Barstow said he could not release any further details.

The Bills issued a statement saying they have been in contact with McCoy and the NFL and will continue gathering information. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league is reviewing the matter.

McCoy turns 30 on Thursday and is preparing to enter his fourth season with the Bills. He spent his first six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he led the NFL in yards rushing in 2013 before being traded to Buffalo in 2015. He has never been suspended by the NFL for using performance enhancing substances during his nine-year career.

Fulton County Magistrate Court records show that McCoy initiated eviction proceedings against the former girlfriend in July 2017, saying that the pair were no longer in a relationship.

Court records show two attempts to serve the former girlfriend with the document but no other action. Eviction paperwork was filed again last month with McCoy listed as the plaintiff and the woman and "and all others" listed as the defendant.

The sworn statement to initiate the proceedings was signed by Tamarcus Porter, who played football with McCoy in college.

Porter was arrested with McCoy following a nightclub brawl involving off-duty police officers in Philadelphia in February 2016. No charges were filed after prosecutors said they could not prove who initiated the fight in which two officers were injured.

The sworn statement signed by Porter said McCoy is the owner of the house and that his ex-girlfriend was refusing to leave.

No attorney for McCoy is listed in court records for the June 6 filing.

The former girlfriend challenged the eviction June 22, saying she had been in a relationship with McCoy for at least two years and that she and her children have lived with McCoy at his house since October 2016, according to a motion filed by her lawyer.

A hearing on the woman's motion had been scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, but her attorney requested a delay because of a family emergency. The judge issued an order resetting the case 30 days.

McCoy discussed marriage with her over Memorial Day and, on May 29, gave her "a substantial gift," the motion says. McCoy left Georgia the next day and had not returned Sam Darnold Color Rush Jersey , the motion says.

The woman went to Virginia on May 31 to attend her sister's graduation. While she was gone, on June 1, McCoy had some of his friends, family members and others remove her furniture and furnishings without her knowledge, the motion says.

The woman saw this happening through security cameras that she could monitor on her cellphone and called the police, the motion says. The police stopped the removal.

The eviction papers were served on the woman's 16-year-old son on June 11.

The woman's lawyer argues that serving the eviction papers on a minor was improper and invalid and the proceedings should be quashed. The lawyer also argues that since Porter is not an attorney, the case should be dismissed.

The woman's attorney claims the eviction action was "completely falsified" by Porter, that McCoy never asked her or her children to leave the home. The last time the pair spoke was on June 1, when McCoy said he was going to meet the woman in Virginia for her sister's graduation.
