Entering the 2020 season, the Falcons had a few questions. They were 3-9 with four games left to go in the 2019 season, yet they won all of those games to save Dan Quinn's job. Quinn was on the hot seat entering the 2020 campaign. Atlanta entered the season with lofty expectations with Matt Ryan and the tandem of Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley still intact. However, the Falcons never got their footing and finished the season 4-12, last in the NFC South.

Notable Falcons Roster Additions: Running back - Mike Davis Tight end - Kyle Pitts Linebacker - Jeff Holland Notable Falcons Roster Losses: Wide receiver - Julio Jones (Tennessee Titans) Safety - Ricardo Allen (Cincinnati Bengals) Defensive end - Allen Bailey (Free Agency)
