The Falcons will hold their second session of their organized team activities today.
This will be the first of four sessions that will be opened to the media and you can expect that all eyes will be on second-year safety William Moore, who returned to action on Tuesday after missing the mandatory minicamp with a pectoral injury.
During training camp last season, Moore, a second-round pick from Missouri, was expected to make a bid for a starting position. His bid was derailed by hamstring and knee injuries.
He played in only two games and was placed on injured reserve on Oct. 27.
The Falcons have revamped their secondary this offseason and now will get to see if Moore can challenge Erik Coleman for the starting strong safety position.
Coleman has been extremely productive over the last two seasons. In 2008, he was the team’s second leading tackler (127) while playing free safety. Last season, he was moved over to strong safety and was the team’s third leading tackler with 139.
Only Curtis Lofton (268) has more tackles than Coleman (266) over the last two seasons.
HAMLIN GETS TRYOUT: According to my man Rodney McKissic of the Buffalo News, Buffalo wide receiver Brett Hamlin has a tryout with the Falcons.
Hamlin, 6-foot-1, 190-pounds, caught 185 passes for 2,190 yards and eight touchdowns over his career.
