Safety Ron Parker made his signing with Atlanta official. He chose the Falcons, he said, for a chance to go to the Super Bowl.
I remember playing against the Falcons and I said, ‘That’s Authentic Cheap Jerseys From China the best offense I’ve ever played since I’ve been in the league,’ Parker said. I’ll never forget that, just the flow of the offense and the flow of how things were going in that game. Even though we won, I felt like we lost because we couldn’t stop [the Falcons] on offense. Yeah, the offense was amazing. That was the best offense I’ve seen in football in a long time.
The Falcons’ return starters in Desmond Trufant, Robert Alford and Brian Poole at cornerback and Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal at safety. They also added Justin Bethel in free agency and selected Isaiah Oliver in the draft.
Richards grew up in Marietta, Georgia, and was an all-state running back as a senior, when he rushed for more than 2,000 yards. He played college football at Florida, and was a seventh-round pick of the Jets in 1976.
Although Richards didn’t last long in the NFL, he made his mark by returning to Marietta High School in 1978 and becoming a teacher and a coach of football, basketball and track. He became the head football coach in 1995 and stayed in that role until retiring in 2010, and he was well known in the community for his work with young people.
‘’He was just a kind-hearted, caring person Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal and as likable a guy as you’ll ever find,’’ the school’s former athletic director, Jeff Wheeler, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He loved the kids he was coaching and the people he worked with. The whole Marietta community is going to miss him. Even after he retired, he was still a big part of what was going on.’’
