The Atlanta Falcons opened training camp on July 31 after a disappointing 2014 campaign.

The Falcons finished last season 6-10, but still nearly made the postseason in a weak AFC South. They were eliminated in Week 17 when they lost 34-3 at home to the Carolina Panthers, who claimed the AFC South title with the victory. 

This off-season, the Falcons notably acquired linebacker Justin Durant, signing him to a three-year deal worth $10.8 million. The team lost defensive tackle Corey Peters in free agency. 

The biggest off-season change for Atlanta came on the sideline: The Falcons fired coach Mike Smith and replaced him with Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.
