Just because WR Tony Martin is no longer with the team, the Atlanta Falcons don't expect their passing game to slow down. The AP reports the team is very comfortable with WR Chris Calloway and Terance Mathis as their starting WRs. The players have been joking with each other on who will be the possession WR for the Falcons this year, but Mathis put it best when he stated, "You've got to understand if you're called upon to catch balls on certain routes, that's what you catch. If they pay you to go deep, that's what you catch ... it's just a matter of making some adjustments."
