The Falcons fired Arthur Smith, now the Pittsburgh Steelers offending planner, following his 3rd successive 7-10 surface. Atlanta worked with previous Los Angeles Rams’ protective organizer Raheem Morris as coach. Morris is bringing offending organizer Zac Robinson and protective organizer Jimmy Lake from the Rams’ personnel.

Jonnu Smith formerly bet Arthur Smith, then the Tennessee Titans’ offending planner, from 2017-20.

The Falcons will acquire $6.5 million in income cap area with the release of Smith. Atlanta still has Kyle Pitts, John FitzPatrick and Tucker Fisk under agreement at tight end.
