Austin Hooper joined Dukes and Bell and Hooper spoke on why he’s going to be better this season  “I feel like it’s because I’ve put in the work, I spent close to 500 hours with Matt this offseason, just one on one either if it was in So Cal or here in Atlanta in March. A lot of it is relationships, look at Matt and Julio, Matt will turn it loose before Julio is out of his break, I can honestly say I have improved.”

Carl asked Austin what he needs to do to catch passes better in traffic, “All it is, is concentration, all I can do is keep working, whether it’s at practice or after practice, have guys swatting at you, trying to knock the ball away.”

When talking about the offense getting better in the red zone Austin told the guys “I feel like we’ve built a better plan this offseason, we have some things that I’m not going to share, but we have put together a big plan and we’ve installed some fun stuff.”
