FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Asante Samuel was impossible to ignore during the Atlanta Falcons' first full-squad practice this offseason.

Atlanta's new No. 22 showed Tuesday he likes to talk, pose and make plays.

"Can I get some action out here?" Samuel called out on the field during the practice. Within minutes he had two interceptions, one against Matt Ryan.

After the first pick, Samuel placed two fingers over each 2 on his jersey and proclaimed: "Deuce Deuce right here."

It was an impressive introduction to organized team activities (OTAs) that left Samuel's new teammates buzzing and coach Mike Smith smiling.

Samuel, the four-time Pro Bowl pick for the Patriots and Eagles, has joined Dunta Robinson and Brent Grimes to make cornerback a strength for the Falcons.
