Falcons looking to get creative as they face major overhaul

ATLANTA (AP) Taking over a team that has endured three straight losing seasons, the Atlanta Falcons' new regime is understandably reluctant to warn of more misery as they attempt to sort out major salary cap issues.

Yet it's clear that incoming general manager Terry Fontenot and rookie coach Arthur Smith are prepping for a big overhaul.

Fontenot said Tuesday that the Falcons, coming off a miserable 4-12 season, will have to be creative in how they build the roster for 2021.
