Falcons prank Atlanta: Samuel L. Jackson is joining the team

acarlson@ledger-enquirer.comApril 1, 2014 

Justin Bieber is buying the Falcons and Matt Ryan is trying out for the Braves and Samuel L. Jackson is joining the coaching staff and Atlantans are not happy.

Welcome to April's Fools, Atlanta Falcons edition: the team's digital crew spread out around the city to get reactions from locals on a variety of breaking announcements, all ridiculous and all of course untrue. Reactions ranged from "this hurts my heart" (Julio Jones is retiring to take up monkhood) to repeated surprised laughter at the Bieber news. This then went up on YouTube.

Your move, New Orleans.
