Falcons training camp: Day 3 highlight roundup

·2 min read

As they say, you only get one chance to make a first impression. Falcons fans got their first look at this year’s team during Friday’s open camp practice — the first of Atlanta’s 13 scheduled open training camp events.

Most NFL analysts have low expectations for this Falcons team, but the fans are cautiously optimistic after a franchise-changing offseason. And while new starting QB Marcus Mariota isn’t as accomplished as his predecessor, Matt Ryan, Mariota has athletic ability beyond anything Ryan has ever dreamed of.

Check out highlights from Friday’s open practice below, as shared by the Falcons’ social media team and D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
