FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga -- The OTAs are winding down at the Atlanta Falcons' headquarters in Flowery Branch. The voluntary off season workouts have been well attended and the participation looks to be paying off.
With new Offensive and Defensive Coordinators, the team has spent the past few weeks digesting changes that are being put in place for the 2012 season. Wide receiver Harry Douglas is glad the changes are taking place this year rather than last summer, when the NFL teams were locked out. Douglas has spent time working special teams as a punt returner during OTAs and says "I did it some during my roookie season and fell in love with it." It will be something to watch for during training camp.
Meanwhile, Head Coach Mike Smith was pleased with the level of participation and what the team has accomplished during the OTAs and says the upcoming Minicamp will be a continuation of what has been taking place the past few weeks.
Falcons Minicamp will run June 19-21 and will be opened to the public each day.
