Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has been able to connect with his newest teammates despite not being allowed at the team facility due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Both tight end Hayden Hurst and running back Todd Gurley were acquired by the Falcons in the offseason.

Ryan joined Andy and Randy on Tuesday and revealed his first impressions of the new members of the offense.

"Hayden is a super athletic guy. He's got exceptional speed at the tight end position; a really good ability to get in and out of cuts which is going to help him create separation."

"I've played against Todd a number of times. I've seen him just dominate the NFL. To see him on the field is impressive...but the thing that has impressed me more than anything is just how smart he is, how sharp he is in terms of retaining information."

"I can't tell you how many things I told him on the first day we worked together and then the next day he had them all down. And I was like 'man, this is rare for guys to be able to have the ability to retain information like that.'"

"I think both those guys fit in really well with what we want to do offensively."
