Veteran Defensive Coach Joins Atlanta Falcons Staff

The Atlanta Falcons have made some great moves already this off-season, with the main one being the addition of new Defensive Coordinator Ryan Nielsen, and after reports emerged of them adding a veteran defensive coach, they've now made it official.

That would be Jerry Gray, who last worked with the Green Bay Packers as their defensive backs coach and passing game coordinator in 2022, and he will now have the title of Assistant Head Coach/Defence, a fantastic addition for Atlanta.

This team certainly has some young offensive talent, and if they can make some additions on the defensive side of the ball, they have a chance to compete for the NFC South crown in 2023, so the addition of Gray will be welcomed in a big way.
