Falcons Giving LB Curtis Lofton More Leeway In Games In 2011

Dan Pompei of the National Football Post reports the Falcons are giving Curtis Lofton more responsibility on the field. After hearing about Lofton running the defense during lockout practices and seeing how he thinks like a coach, Falcons coaches decided to give the fourth year middle linebacker more leeway in games this year.

Last year, he had the ability to check out of a play if he saw something he didn’t like. But this year Lofton tells Pompei he will be able to call for fronts and blitzes up to 30 percent of the time.
