Falcons' Smith faces difficult rebuilding task in first camp

ATLANTA FALCONS (4-12)

CAMP SITE: Flowery Branch, Georgia

LAST YEAR: The Falcons' first 0-7 start since 1997 led to the firings of coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff. Interim coach Raheem Morris managed four wins, but that was not enough for him to keep the job or change the team's path toward an overhaul. Terry Fontenot was hired from the Saints as general manager and former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith was hired as coach. A flurry of cost-cutting moves, including the trade of seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones to the Titans, helped to define the rebuilding job facing Smith and Fontenot.
