Gono signed a one-year $3.4 million contract with the Falcons prior to the 2021 season, but didn’t take a single snap because of injury. Gono likely would have seen significant time at left guard where rookie Jalen Mayfield was forced into action before he was ready.

Mayfield started 16 games at left guard for Atlanta in 2020, but the 21-year old was graded as the 77th ranked guard out of 83 eligible by Pro Football Focus (PFF).

Coward should help provide competition and depth for Mayfield at guard as well as Kaleb McGary at right tackle. … and of course protection for QB Matt Ryan.

This season, Coward saw action in one game with the Jacksonville Jaguars before finishing the last four games of the season with the Steelers. He was used primarily on special teams.

Coward joins former San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Daniel Helm as the team’s most recent signings. The Falcons are suddenly thin at the tight end position with the retirement of Lee Smith and the pending free agency of Hayden Hurst
