Fantasy Impact:

The Falcons moved on from Arthur Smith and are now bringing in a defensive coach in Morris. The 47-year-old coach has a history with Atlanta, having served as an assistant and an interim coach with the Falcons in the past. It seemed as though Bill Belichick had the lead on the job until some reports came out recently indicating otherwise, and the Falcons ultimately decided to roll with Morris.
