The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports Falcons DL Ra'Shede Hageman is facing domestic violence charges stemming from an incident in March.
Hageman was a surprise inactive Week 1, and this could help explain why. Ledbetter reports Hageman was charged with "interference with a call for emergency help, battery family violence, and cruelty to children in the third degree." The league has reportedly been in contact with the Falcons regarding the matter. The 2014 second-round pick has not lived up to his draft slot through two seasons and is now likely facing a suspension. Mon, Sep 12, 2016 09:32:00 AM

Falcons declared DL Ra'Shede Hageman, WR Taylor Gabriel, S Keanu Neal, OG Mike Person, S Terron Ward, OG Wes Schweitzer, and TE Josh Perkins inactive for Week 1 against the Bucs.

Hageman is a surprise healthy scratch, leaving Courtney Upshaw and Derrick Shelby to back up on the interior. Neal remains week to week.

Falcons DL coach Bryan Cox said he is hoping "to see some improvement" from third-year DL Ra'Shede Hageman.

"He’s more alert in meetings. He’s trying to work his butt off," Cox said. "I think he’s done a good job this offseason of working to get his pad level lower and working on his ankle flexing and some of the things that can make him a better player." After struggling in limited snaps at defensive tackle through two seasons, the Falcons are moving Hageman to end to help get his career on track. This could be a make-or-break season for the former second-round pick.

Falcons 2014 second-round pick Ra'Shede Hageman will see snaps at defensive end this season.

A tackle by trade, Hageman will take over the strong-side end position in base sets, allowing Tyson Jackson to play inside. This position switch should allow Hageman to focus more on controlling the point of attack and stopping the run rather than penetrating and getting to the quarterback, which he has struggled to do through two seasons.

Falcons DT Ra'Shede Hageman (concussion) has been cleared to return to practice.

Hageman suffered the concussion in practice on August 18. Hageman started the Falcons first preseason game, but was forced to sit out last week.

Falcons DT Ra'Shede Hageman suffered a concussion in Tuesday's training camp practice.

He's now in the league's concussion program and will have to clear protocol. Hageman will not play in Friday's second preseason game. Last year's second-round pick, Hageman started the first preseason game.

Falcons second-year DT Ra'Shede Hageman dropped 15 pounds over the offseason.

Hageman was listed at 318 as a rookie after checking in at the Combine at 310. He's closer to 300 now as he looks for a fresh start in new coach Dan Quinn's aggressive defense. Hageman played 224 snaps in year one and received below-average marks across the board from Pro Football Focus. It's unclear where he'll line up, but he could play the "big" end spot or three-technique.

Updating previous items, Falcons rookie DE Ra'Shede Hageman has been diagnosed with a bone bruise on his wrist.

It's much better news than the hairline fracture previously reported by ESPN. "Hageman does not have a fractured hand," coach Mike Smith said. "You will see that he will be a full participant in practice today. There was no fracture whatsoever in his hand." Hageman is competing for a starting job in camp.

Updating a previous item, rookie DE Ra'Shede Hageman did not suffer a wrist fracture in Sunday's practice.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Hageman "did not suffer a broken wrist or any broken bones," contrary to an ESPN report. It's a much-needed break for the Falcons' defense, which has already lost ILB Sean Weatherspoon (Achilles') and FS Dwight Lowery (concussions). Hageman was the 37th pick in May's draft.

Falcons rookie DE Ra'Shede Hageman is believed to have suffered a hairline wrist fracture in practice.

We're starting to feel genuinely bad for the Falcons, who can't catch a break. (No pun intended.) The 37th pick in May's draft, Hageman is being counted on for major snaps as a rookie. It's possible he could put a cast on the wrist and play through it, although hand usage is critical for defensive linemen, and his effectiveness could be affected. Otherwise, it's at least a four-week injury.

The Falcons have "huge expectations" for second-round DE Ra'Shede Hageman.

The 6-foot-6, 318-pound Hageman reportedly had an impressive spring, showing off his strength. Tyson Jackson is likely locked in as one of the starting defensive ends, especially on running downs, while Hageman competes with Jonathan Babineaux and dark horse Malliciah Goodman on the other side. Hageman should at least carve out a role on passing downs in year one.
Tue, Jul 15, 2014 11:32:00 AM

Falcons signed second-round DE Ra'Shede Hageman to a four-year contract.

Hageman, the 37th overall pick, lined up at left end at rookie camp. In the Falcons' transition to a 3-4, we'd expect Hageman to compete with Tyson Jackson and Jonathan Babineaux for the two starting defensive end jobs. Hageman should at least have a role on passing downs right out of the chute.
Wed, May 21, 2014 04:09:00 PM

Falcons second-round pick Ra'Shede Hageman lined up at left defensive end at rookie minicamp.

When the veterans report for OTAs, No. 37 pick Hageman figures to compete with Tyson Jackson and Jonathan Babineaux for the two starting end jobs. Paul Soliai will play nose tackle. Hageman should also figure quickly into DC Mike Nolan's nickel defense with an ability to push the pocket on passing downs.

Falcons selected Minnesota DL Ra'Shede Hageman with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Hageman (6-foot-6, 310) was a first-team All-Big Ten selection as a senior, finishing his career with 24 tackles for loss including 13 in 2013, with two sacks, nine batted passes, and two blocked kicks. A converted tight end and freaky athlete for his size, Hageman ran 5.02 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump at the Combine, to go with 32 bench reps. Hageman flashed dominant ability for the Gophers, but his college tape is maddeningly inconsistent. He'll be a 24-year-old rookie and profiles as a boom-or-bust prospect due to snap-to-snap effort concerns. The Falcons run multiple fronts, so Hageman could play some one technique or even kick out as a five technique. We suspect he'll play the "five" most, as Atlanta's free agency and draft moves suggest a full-time switch to 3-4.

ESPN Chicago expects the Bears to target defensive line with the No. 51 overall pick on Friday.

Beat writer Jeff Dickerson specifically predicts Chicago will select Minnesota DT Ra'Shede Hageman at No. 51, though he could be gone long before then. There are reports teams are expecting a run on defensive linemen at the top of round two. Florida State's Timmy Jernigan may also be in play for the Bears.
