The Atlanta Falcons haven't made many waves so far in free agency, though it fits Thomas Dimitroff's traditional model of letting everybody else freak out for a couple days before doing anything. Also, Falcons are birds and thus do not make waves.
The biggest news so far: the re-signing of No. 3 receiver and potential punt returner Harry Douglas. Now that he's signed his second contract with the team, Douglas says he might not mind wearing red and black from here on out:
"I just put my phones on silent and I just was relaxing," Douglas said in a phone interview with AtlantaFalcons.com on Wednesday afternoon. "I was doing stuff on my own, and then people who I'm really, really close to or knew stuff about it, I would talk to them about it."
"I grew up watching the Falcons and me signing this contract now to come back, I made up my mind," Douglas said. "I said, ‘I wouldn't mind retiring one day just playing for one team.' "
Jones attended Jonesboro High School in Clayton County before leaving the state to play for Louisville. He's entering his fifth year with the Falcons.
