The Atlanta Falcons are going to have a new-look offense next season with Hayden Hurst being acquired in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens. Upon his arrival to the Falcons, Hurst described why Atlanta is a ‘perfect fit’ for him.

“It’s going to be a perfect fit,” Hurst said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Koetter’s pass-heavy offense is going to suit me well. It’s going to allow me to do some things that I personally do well [like] stretch the field vertically and hopefully create some mismatches for the other guys, Julio and Calvin. I saw where they’ve picked up Laquon Treadwell as well. It’s a pretty potent offense. I’m just excited to be a part of it.”

The Falcons watched Austin Hooper depart in free agency, signing with the Cleveland Browns on the first day of the legal tampering period. In an attempt to replace Hooper, the Falcons manufactured a trade to land Hurst from the Ravens.

Within the trade, the Falcons sent a second and fifth-round pick in exchange for Hurst and a fourth-round pick. Seeing that, Atlanta is confident that Hurst can become a marquee player in their passing attack.

While with the Ravens, Hurst was primarily used as a blocker in Baltimore’s run-oriented offense. In addition, Baltimore was crowded at tight end with Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle also needing targets. However, with the Falcons, Hurst should be given more opportunities to flash his receiving skills.

During the 2019 season, Hurst hauled in a career-best 30 receptions for 349 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers should see a drastic increase in Hurst’s first season with the Falcons in 2020.
