  • Falcons' Arnold Ebiketie: Career-high 6.0 sacks in 2023

    Ebiketie finished 2023 with 25 tackles, 6.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass defense in 17 appearances.

    A 2022 second-round pick, Ebiketie appeared in one more game than his rookie season but played 130 fewer defensive snaps. This may have been by design, as the Falcons loaded up on pass rushers last offseason to ensure Ebiketie was fresh when he was on the field. Despite the reduced playing time, Ebiketie posted 3.5 more sacks than last year and proved to be a disruptor, forcing two forced fumbles for a second straight season. Bud Dupree may sign elsewhere this offseason, which would open up more snaps for Ebiketie in 2024, but the Falcons would presumably bring in someone to replace Dupree if that's the case.

  • Falcons' Arnold Ebiketie: Continues to get after QB

    Ebiketie recorded one sack during Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets.

    Ebiketie has recorded a sack in back-to-back games following Atlanta's Week 11 bye. He has at least one sack in five of his last seven appearances after not recording one through the first five weeks of the season. Ebiketie's snap count hasn't increased during this strong stretch, but he is seeing more pass-rushing opportunities with Grady Jarrett (knee) sidelined.

  • Falcons' Arnold Ebiketie: Logs sack versus Saints

    Ebiketie tallied one tackle (one solo), with a sack, in Sunday's 24-15 win versus the Saints.

  • Falcons' Arnold Ebiketie: Logs sack in loss

    Ebiketie logged two tackles (two solo), including a sack, in Atlanta's 28-23 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

    Ebiketie was only one of two Atlanta defenders to tally a sack, something the 24-year-old has now done twice in the past three weeks. Ebiketie's 2.5 sacks already match his season total from a year ago, and he'll look to add to those numbers this week versus the Vikings.

  • Falcons' Arnold Ebiketie: Gets after quarterback

    Ebiketie recorded two tackles (one solo), including 1.5 sacks, during Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Commanders.

    Ebiketie, a 2022 second-round pick, recorded 30 tackles, including 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles in 16 games as a rookie. He got off to a slow start this year and had been playing fewer snaps compared to 2022, but that all changed against the Commanders. The Falcons pass rush is one of the worst in the NFL, but if Ebiketie can make his presence felt more often, he should quickly carve out more snaps and could emerge as an IDP option later in the season.
