Atlanta Falcons Training Camp Schedule 2011: Friday Begins On-Field Action

While we don't yet have a detailed schedule for Atlanta Falcons training camp, which will hopefully come out soon and reveal practices that will be open to the public and maybe practices featuring other teams, but we do have a sense for how the first three days of official Falcons activity should go.

On Wednesday, players will gather at Flowery Branch to take physicals and fill out union cards. Thursday will reportedly see the players reporting for training camp, but actual, physical practices won't begin until Friday, tentatively. Consider Thursday a meeting day with some likely pickup football, basketball or other endeavors following whatever goes down behind facility walls.

You have to think Arthur Blank and Mike Smith will be excited to see their players again. Since we know NFL coaches and players have had absolutely no contact with each other during the lockout -- wink, wink -- there will be a lot of catching up to do. Rookies like Julio Jones have already spent time with their new teammates, but this will be the first official chance for new players to be integrated into the fold.
