The Atlanta Falcons have established one of the most explosive, young offenses in the NFL.
After drafting Bijan Robinson with the No. 8 pick in this year’s draft, Drake London and Kyle Pitts have another elite teammate joining them in this offense.
According to Tom Pelissero, Slade Bolden has recently scheduled a workout with the Falcons, another potential addition to their offense.

Bolden spent four years at the University of Alabama but went undrafted during the 2022 NFL Draft.
He was a national champion in 2020 but took a backseat to DeVonta Smith in Alabama’s offense.
The Baltimore Ravens signed him to their practice squad last year, never seeing the active roster.
Could the Falcons carve out a role for him in the offense?
London and Pitts are in-line to be the Falcons’ top two target-getters, given their draft capital and pre-draft measurables.
Not to mention, Robinson is slated to get a vast majority of running back carries, and will likely have a role in the passing game as well.
The Falcons are likely to enter the season with Desmond Ridder as their starting quarterback, who has received mixed reviews thus far.
If Bolden is added to this offense, he will have to work extra diligently to get targets, given the number of mouths to feed.
After spending three drafts prioritizing their offense, the Falcons are still in search of a winning season with their new-look roster.
