The Falcons added a familiar face to their coaching staff.

Atlanta hired T.J. Yates as its passing game specialist, the team announced Saturday.

The former veteran quarterback served as Matt Ryan's backup in 2014. Now he's one of his coaches. Yates has spent the past two seasons coaching Deshaun Watson, first as an offensive assistant for the Texans and then an assistant quarterbacks coach. He joins an almost entirely brand new offensive staff in Atlanta, headed by coach Arthur Smith.

Yates made 10 regular-season starts and won a playoff game over a seven-year career that included three stints with the Texans and brief stops with the Dolphins and Bills.

Not a good choice for the Falcons

I only vaguely remember him here. That said I think he had the Tools in the head but not physically. Just a passing game specialist. Seems entry level to me.

This is the kind of job you ultimately give to Matt Barkley while trying to get a backup in Buffalo who doesn't assure you lose if he's called on to play.
