Despite controlling their game against the Carolina Panthers this week, the Falcons are outside of the playoff picture with a 3-7 record. One person who knows how to fix the Falcons is Atlanta native Quavo.
"We need to get Matt Ryan out of there!" Quavo said bluntly during a recent interview with TMZ Sports. After putting Matty Ice on ice, Quavo thinks the Falcons should go after the most talked-about NFL free agent. "I love Colin [Kaepernick]," Quavo continued. "He should be on a team...The Atlanta Falcons."
By now you've heard that Kaepernick hosted a workout in Georgia this weekend. Initially, the session was organized by the NFL and set to be held at the Atlanta Falcons' training facility. But due to complications with a liability waiver and media transparency, Kaepernick decided to forgo the NFL workout in exchange for an open session at a local high school. Despite the Southern hospitality. Atlanta doesn't seem to be in the mix of potential suitors.
If Kaepernick would have gone forward with the NFL workout, then 25 teams would have had representatives in attendance. In contrast, only eight teams made it to the Riverdale session. Per Adam Schefter, the teams were the Chiefs, Jets, Eagles, Titans, Bills, 49ers, Redskins, and Lions. Also, Matt Ryan just signed a 5-year, $150 million contract extension in 2018. So, it's highly unlikely that owner Arthur Blank and/or general manager Thomas Dimitroff will be taking Quavo's advice any time soon.
