FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga-- Atlanta Falcons players arrived in Flowery Branch Wednesday to start Training Camp. The team will conduct 33 sessions between July 25 and August 11, including walkthroughs and practices. Thirteen of them will be open to the public.
Stories are already beginning to emerge from camp.
Brian Banks launched a blog Monday, entitled "My Journey". Banks was a high-profile recruit from USC before false charges led to a five-year prison sentence. He's been exonerated and reported to training camp on his Birthday. Monday, he wrote: "As I step onto that field for training camp, I will do it with the mindset of a winner. I went to hell and back and I survived a better man."
Wednesday, @Atlanta_Falcons tweeted a picture of Banks and the message: "RT to wish Falcons LB @BrianBanksFREE a very happy birthday today! #RiseUp".
The Falcons also announced Wednesday they've signed 7th round pick quarterback Sean Renfree. Renfree threw 51 touchdowns during his career at Duke.
Tickets for single games also went on sale Wednesday at 10:00am.
