On Thursday afternoon, we had the pleasure of having Kurt Benkert, quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons, come on to the SportsTalkATL podcast.
Benkert played college ball first at East Carolina, and later at the University of Virginia. In 2018, he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Falcons and has been with them ever since. Benkert impressed this past year during the preseason, but unfortunately, his season was cut short due to a toe injury in the preseason. During his time off, he has been working on his incredible gaming skills and interacting with his fans on Twitter. Benkert has a real shot at being Matt Ryan’s primary backup next season, so we decided to let the fans get to know him a bit better and have him on the show.
We really appreciate Kurt coming on and being a friend of the site! We also would love to send our congratulations as he shortly found out after he will be having a baby girl!
Words can’t describe the feeling. It’s a girl 💗 pic.twitter.com/Ca70QGQnFq
