Falcons Practice Squad: Bear Woods Is Sort Of A Falcon

Jay Adams introduces your 2010 Atlanta Falcons practice squad:

Tight end Robbie Agnone, wide receiver Tim Buckley, running back Dimitri Nance, wide receiver Andy Strickland, tackle Jose Valdez, safety Rafael Bush, defensive end Emmanuel Stephens and linebacker Bear Woods.

Bear Woods has been a fan favorite since he was signed as a rookie free agent, inspiring many forced jokes to be attempted — many of them Chuck Norris jokes, some mere puns — on his behalf due to his name that feels so close to being a sentence, redlocks hair style, and quiet intensity.

In tribute, we present this quote from a 1984 Ronald Reagan ad:

There is a bear in the woods. For some people, the bear is easy to see. Others don’t see it at all. Some people say the bear is tame. Others say it’s vicious and dangerous. Since no one can really be sure who’s right, isn’t it smart to be as strong as the bear?
