The Atlanta Falcons are 0-5 heading into Week 6. On Monday, the Falcons fired GM Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Dan Quinn, and Raheem Morris will take over as interim coach.

More changes could be on the horizon in Atlanta. Falcons owner Arthur Blank didn’t sound confident in Matt Ryan‘s future, telling the media that he’s “not sure” the QB can continue to play at a high level at his age.

“I love Matt, much like I love Dan, I love Thomas,” Blank said via Vaughn McClure of ESPN. “Matt’s been a franchise leader for us, great quarterback; one of the leading quarterbacks in the last 13 years in the NFL. I hope he’s going to be part of our plans going forward. But that will be a decision that I won’t make.”

Atlanta is only one of three winless teams (Giants and Jets), which puts them in contention for a top quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft. Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence is widely expected to enter the draft.
