After losing to the eventual Super Bowl Champion NY Giants in the Wild card playoffs last season, Head Coach Mike Smith is hoping to regroup and bring back some key players from injuries. One such player is former first round pick LT Sam Baker and Coach Smith will be looking to his new offensive line coach Pat Hill. Hill, who has known Baker since his days in high school, looks to bring Baker back to his old self.
“He has great athletic ability,” Hill said. “I knew Sam coming out of high school and out of (USC). From playing against him and watching him, I know the athletic ability is there. I’m excited about working with him.”
The Falcons will open a 3-day mini-camp that will be open to the public beginning on June 19th thru the 21st.
