Another season has come to an end for the Atlanta Falcons as they miss a third consecutive playoff berth. And they’ll head into the postseason, still on the search to improve their run game.
The Falcons signed Todd Gurley to a one-year deal last offseason and he’ll likely be on his way out after declining in the second half of the season. So, who will take over the starting role? The Falcons tested their options during the season, but backups Ito Smith and Brian Hill still have a lot to prove.
But, Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst has an idea on who can improve the Falcons run game.
The Baltimore Ravens recently released running back Mark Ingram to save $5 million in cap space.
Hurst and Ingram are former teammates and Hurst sent a not-so-subliminal message on Twitter that Atlanta should acquire the free agent. And Ingram seemingly agreed.
