News and Notes - Hall gets a look at LDE

Posted Jul 14, 2004

With training camp right around the corner Falcon Insider brings you some of the lastest from the Birds.

Although Travis Hall made his name in the NFL as a DT early in his 10-year career, and the Falcons are moving back to the 4-3 from a 3-4, team officials are looking at him as a backup LDE. Hall was a DE at Brigham Young many years ago. If DT Ellis Johnson makes good on his threat to holdout, Hall might be in the mix as a backup DT. He probably doesn't have the quickness to play much at RDE, as a rush end.

Roberto Garza, who's coming off a torn right anterior cruciate knee ligament, has worked chiefly as a backup C in the offseason (mostly in limited fashion). But he may end up competing in training camp at LG with David Beverly and Michael Moore.

QUOTE TO NOTE "A lot of the ideas and concepts are the same in the two systems so my learning curve is not as great and I can concentrate on learning the defenses and how everything fits together. There are a lot of different routes that I haven't seen so the progressions are different, and the running game is very different from what I'm used to." - Falcons rookie QB Matt Schaub, on the Falcons' new West Coast offensive as compared to the offense he worked in during his first two seasons at the University of Virginia, when Jags OC Bill Musgrave was coordinator there.
