Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank joined Dukes & Bell Monday for the first time since the Falcons lost Super Bowl 51 in Houston. Blank was very candid with his answers about the big game.

Blank also felt very confident about the way general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Dan Quinn have put this team together. “We’ll be back in that [Super Bowl] arena hopefully many times to come,” Blank said.

Blank also said he expects a deal with running back Devonta Freeman to get done… soon.

When it comes to Atlanta United, Blank sounded proud and appreciative about the support the Five Stripes faithful have poured out. He also dropped some “monumental” news on how Atlanta United would match the Falcons’ statue in front of Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
