FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) As Seattle's defensive coordinator, Dan Quinn helped lead Seattle to two straight Super Bowls, including one championship. Quinn opens his first training camp as Falcons coach on Friday trying to overhaul Atlanta's woeful unit.
The Falcons allowed the most total yards and yards passing and tied for 30th in sacks in 2014, when they finished 6-10 for their second straight losing record.
A strong edge rusher, Vic Beasley of Clemson, was Quinn's first draft pick. More defensive help came with the second-round pick, cornerback Jalen Collins, and such veteran additions as linebackers Justin Durant, Brooks Reed and O'Brien Schofield and defensive end Adrian Clayborn.
