Two franchise greats should finish the year in rareified air.

The Atlanta Falcons have future franchise icons on their roster right now, even if we’re not exactly sure who out of the group of Bijan Robinson, Drake London, A.J. Terrell, Kyle Pitts, and Chris Lindstrom will be the ones we remember most fondly down the line.

Atlanta brings back the reliable McCullough for a third season.

Stability is a good thing at long snapper, because if you’re bringing back a player year after year at the most niche position in the NFL, he’s probably doing a good job.

That’s the case for Liam McCullough, a core piece of the special teams puzzle for the Atlanta Falcons. That’s why it’s not at all surprising to see the team bring McCullough back,...

Sometimes that player lands in Atlanta—Jessie Bates, thankfully—and more often the Deshaun Watsons, the Justin Houstons of yesteryear, and so forth land somewhere else.
