  • Falcons' Eddie Goldman: Reinstated after retiring in 2022

    The Falcons announced Tuesday that Goldman has been reinstated from the reserve/retired list, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Goldman announced his retirement last summer less than two weeks after signing a one-year deal with Atlanta. The 2015 second-round pick by the Bears has totaled 174 tackles and 13 sacks in 81 games over six seasons with Chicago. He had previously opted out of the 2020 campaign but returned in 2021 and posted 22 tackles and 0.5 sacks in 14 appearances (320 defensive snaps).

  • Falcons' Casey Hayward: Recovering from pectoral surgery

    Hayward is recovering from pectoral surgery and said Tuesday, "I'm doing good. Hopefully, by OTAs and camp, I'll be 100 percent," D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Hayward started the first six games of 2022 before being placed on IR with what was initially reported as a shoulder injury. The two-time Pro Bowler missed the remainder of the campaign and appears to have undergone surgery, though it's unclear when the procedure took place. If he's healthy, Hayward figures to slot into the starting cornerback spot opposite A.J. Terrell in 2023, but Atlanta may still add a few more pieces to its secondary this offseason.
