Quinn is expected to be hired as head coach, but that can't officially happen until the Seahawks' season is over. Shanahan will have some talent to work with in Atlanta, namely QB Matt Ryan, WR Julio Jones and RB Devonta Freeman.

Week 17: Jones vs. Panthers
Despite playing through an oblique injury, Julio Jones caught seven-of-eight targets for 107 yards in the Falcons' Week 16 win over the Saints. He proved on his first reception that he would be more than just a decoy when he high-pointed a pass with a defender at his back and secured 23-yard catch for a first down. While he was held out of practice this week, Jones should play on Sunday despite not being 100-percent healthy. If the Falcons beat the Panthers then they'll win the NFC South and host a playoff game next week, so there's no reason to think Jones will hold himself out. He's our No. 6 overall WR for Week 17 and should be in all lineups.
