Atlanta Falcons receiver Russell Gage joined Dukes & Bell Monday to talk about training camp, working with Julio Jones, and the offense under new offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.

When asked about where he fits in on this team...

“We have a real talented receiving corps,” Gage said. “It’s great for me to learn from them. I plan for us to dominate special teams. I want us to take over and that’s my role, so I look forward to dominating.”

Gage talked about working with Julio Jones.

“The details,” Gage said. “They’re really detailed at work. When you get out here and work you can see how detailed they are in their work and then lead by example. Julio is a big leader by example.”

Gage told the guys what he thinks about the difference with Dirk Koetter running the offense.

“Tempo. I like the way we move the ball,” Gage said. “Dirk is real exciting, and I love it. I can’t wait to see this explosive offense we have and I think he’s going to do a great job of putting is in position to make plays.”
