How the Falcons could line up for the 2021 season

The Atlanta Falcons went 4-12 last year, finishing last in the NFC South. Dan Quinn was fired as head coach after an 0-5 start, and general manager Thomas Dimitroff was dismissed as well. Changes continued in the offseason with the trade of wide receiver Julio Jones and the departure of other key veterans. Terry Fontenot is the new GM, and former Tennessee offensive coordinator Arthur Smith is getting his first chance at being a head coach. The Falcons' offense should remain potent with Matt Ryan leading the attack, while the NFL's worst passing defense last season must improve significantly. Even with all of the new faces, Atlanta could potentially contend for a playoff spot, or it could wind up with another losing record. Regardless of the outcome, this team should be better in 2021.
