Trufant, Alford step into Atlanta leadership roles

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons need new leadership on defense, and coach Mike Smith says second-year cornerbacks Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford fit the job description perfectly.

"Those two guys we're counting on," Smith said Sunday night. "They've got to continue to grow from where they were last year."

Coming off a 4-12 season that ended with their defense ranked last in third-down efficiency, second-worst against the run and third-fewest in sacks, the Falcons still have unfulfilled leadership roles at several positions.
