Falcons waived G/C Peter Konz with an injury settlement.
The No. 55 overall pick of the 2012, Konz was highly ineffective his first two years on the job before tearing his ACL last October. He still isn't back to 100 percent health. He's just one of GM Thomas Dimitroff's legion draft misses. Dimitroff no longer has final say over the Falcons' draft board. Konz is only 25, but teams won't be lining up to give him a second chance.

Falcons C/G Peter Konz will miss "a few weeks" after undergoing a knee scope.

This is usually a 2-4 week injury. The 55th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Konz has settled in as an NFL backup and wasn't in the hunt for a starting job.

Falcons placed C Peter Konz on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

Veteran OT Jonathan Scott has been signed to take his roster spot. Konz was the Falcons' second-string center, as starter Joe Hawley was lost for the season in Week 4. The Falcons are now down to UDFA James Stone in the middle of their offensive line. A 2012 second-round bust, Konz will now head into the final year of his rookie contract coming off major injury. His 2015 roster spot will be far from assured.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Falcons fear C Peter Konz's knee injury is "significant."

Konz is not an effective player, but it would be terrible news for a Falcons line already missing starter Joe Hawley. Atlanta will be forced to roll with UDFA James Stone if Konz ends up missing extended time.

Falcons C Peter Konz was carted off the field with a knee injury in Sunday's Week 7 game at Baltimore.

He was replaced by UDFA James Stone. An already depleted offensive line is now more depleted.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 01:33:00 PM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure hints 2012 second-round pick G/C Peter Konz could be on the roster bubble.

Konz has been manhandled in game action to this point, and McClure sees Joe Hawley as "a lock" to be Atlanta's Week 1 center. Falcons coaches have begun giving G/T Mike Johnson practice reps at center, possibly threatening Konz's job.

Falcons third-year G/C Peter Konz says he's been "living in the weight room" this offseason and has put on additional weight.

Konz, the 55th overall pick in the 2012 draft, started 15 games last season but lost his center job to Joe Hawley. The Falcons added RG Jon Asamoah in free agency, so Konz is going to have to beat out Hawley if he wants to start. Konz has been pushed around far too easily as both a run and pass blocker.

Falcons G/C Peter Konz was benched during Sunday's Week 11 loss at Tampa.

Konz got the nod at guard Sunday ahead of Garrett Reynolds as Joe Hawley stepped in at center. But Konz got humiliated by dominating Bucs DT Gerald McCoy and was replaced by Reynolds. "Just one on one, and I lost," he admitted. "So that's why they replaced me." The Falcons are grasping at straws as they try to patch together some semblance of an offensive line. It's a problem unlikely to be solved without an infusion of talent this offseason.

Second-year pro Peter Konz is expected to be the Falcons' starting center this season.

The 2012 second-rounder is replacing Todd McClure. Konz is facing light competition from Joe Hawley, but coach Mike Smith has made it clear the job is his to lose. "That was the plan when we drafted him," said Smith. Konz struggled at guard last season, so he'll still have to show well in camp to lock things up.
Wed, Jun 5, 2013 05:28:00 PM

NFL draft insider Tony Pauline "hears" that the Falcons plan to move Peter Konz to center in 2013, replacing free agent Todd McClure.

McClure is 36 years old, and it sounds like he's played his final down in Atlanta. Konz, the 55th overall pick in last year's draft, made 12 starts as a rookie right guard, including both playoff games. He was a liability as both a run and pass blocker, but the Falcons believe he will thrive at center.
Thu, Feb 14, 2013 09:39:00 AM

Falcons signed rookie G/C Peter Konz, the No. 55 overall pick, to a four-year contract.

Konz will compete for Atlanta's starting right guard job as a rookie, but he projects as C Todd McClure's successor in the long term. In order to excel as a run blocker in the Falcons' power-blocking scheme, Konz will have to improve his strength. While he should pass block effectively at 6'5/314 with 33-inch arms, Konz's upper body has lots of room for improvement.
Sun, May 13, 2012 01:34:00 PM

Falcons second-round pick Peter Konz fell to the 55th pick in the draft due to medical concerns about his ankle and blood clotting.

He checked out medically with Atlanta, though, and the Falcons plan to use Konz at right guard while grooming him as their center of the future. "Everything checked out fine," GM Thomas Dimitroff said of Konz's medical. "The blood clots were an anomaly. ... He's cleared up very well. He's a durable guy."
Sun, Apr 29, 2012 06:39:00 PM

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff confirms second-round pick Peter Konz will be listed as a guard/center as a rookie.

"I can’t emphasize enough how important it is Konz can play both guard and center," Dimitroff said. "We have him listed as a guard-center." This lends credence to the notion that Konz will play right guard as a rookie before eventually taking over for 35-year-old C Todd McClure. McClure isn't signed beyond 2012.
Sat, Apr 28, 2012 11:09:00 AM

Falcons selected Wisconsin C/G Peter Konz with the No. 55 pick in the 2012 draft.

The consensus top center in the draft, Konz lacks upper-body strength, has durability concerns, and is tall for the position. On the positive side, the second-team All-American is a master technician and viewed by at least one scout as a "genius" when drawing up plays on the white board. Joe Hawley, a 2010 fourth-rounder, fell flat when filling in for 35-year-old Todd McClure last year. Konz could beat out the underwhelming Garrett Johnson at right guard this season before switching to the pivot once McClure retires.

The Carroll County Times confirms that the Ravens displayed "consistent interest" in Wisconsin G/C Peter Konz throughout the pre-draft period.

Konz was a visitor at Ravens headquarters, and they kept tabs on him from January through late April. SI's Tony Pauline has reported that Konz will be the Ravens' primary fallback option if Boise State LB Shea McClellin isn't available at the 29th pick. Konz would likely start at left guard in Baltimore.
