Coach Mike Smith Excited for the Start of Falcons Camp

Falcons coach Mike Smith eased up out of the leather chair behind the desk in his office and calmly walked over to the window.

There were six players, including linebackers Mike Peterson, Stephen Nicholas and Tony Gilbert, tight end Ben Hartsock and rookie defensive end Lawrence Sidbury, running sprints.
