FLOWERY BRANCH, GA - The Atlanta Falcons are still ticked off about their last game. It's time to start making up for that ugly playoff loss.
With the lockout settled, the Falcons opened training camp Friday amid a flurry of moves designed to bolster another run at the team's first Super Bowl title.
In the space of 24 hours, the Falcons lured free-agent defensive end Ray Edwards away from the Minnesota Vikings, agreed to a new deal with Pro Bowl offensive tackle Tyson Clabo and locked up their entire draft class, including top pick Julio Jones.
The team also released two former first-round picks, receiver Michael Jenkins and defensive end Jamaal Anderson.
Atlanta won the NFC South championship but lost at home in the playoffs, 48-21 to Green Bay.
