News broke of the Gurley signing two months ago, and now it’s official as he was able to fly to Atlanta and take his physical on Monday. Last year was a down year for the sixth-year running back, only rushing for 857 yards and 12 TDs on 223 carries, for an average of 3.8 yards per carry. He’ll look to get back on track with the Falcons, in a territory he’s familiar with having played his college ball at the University of Georgia. Look for a bounce-back season from Gurley so long as he can remain healthy. He has the ability to be an RB1 this season in Atlanta.
