Why do these details matter? The Atlanta Falcons 2016 minicamp is open to the public. If you’ve been dying to check out the rookies, or witness some of head coach Dan Quinn’s offseason changes in action, this is a great opportunity, as the minicamp is mandatory for all players.

This minicamp is the last event before training camp, which is scheduled to begin on July 27. Not only does minicamp give the players a chance to show the coaches what they are capable of, but also fans in attendance.
