Soliai, Jackson bring 'girth' to defensive line

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) The new wide bodies on the Atlanta Falcons' defensive line are difficult to overlook.

After Atlanta finished next to last in the NFL in run defense last season, some substantial bulk was added to the defensive line. Among the newcomers are two veterans expected to start - defensive tackle Paul Soliai (6-foot-4, 345) and defensive end Tyson Jackson (6-4, 296).

The big additions were on display at Friday Night Lights before a crowd of 12,316 at Archer High School.
