FLOWERY BRANCH – In a move to bring the team closer together, Falcons coach Dan Quinn moved the players around in the locker room.

Instead of players being grouped together by position group, Quinn mixed them all up.

Quarterback Matt Ryan is next to center Alex Mack.

Cornerback Desmond Trufant has free safety Robenson Therezie on one side and long-snapper Josh Harris on the other.

Wide receiver Julio Jones has a corner locker and is next to running back Devonta Freeman.

“He talks a lot,” Jones said.
