"During his tenure with the Falcons and throughout his NFL career, Dunn represented the highest of NFL standards on and off the field. Dunn has a special affinity for the Falcons, as we do for him, and we are very happy he will be back in the Falcons family representing our club as a limited partner."

The Atlanta Falcons

 


Established in 1966, the Atlanta Falcons have become a staple of the Atlanta community over the past 45 years. They have cemented themselves as a force in the league, having made the playoffs three out of the last 4 years. Led by coach Mike Smith and owner Arthur Blank, the Falcons look to continue on the path towards winning the franchise’s first ever Super Bowl.

 

Warrick Dunn: The Atlanta Falcons

Joining the Atlanta Falcons Ownership Team

After his last year playing in the NFL, Warrick knew he wanted to continue his love for the game of football off the field. After exploring the typical post-football routes, Warrick pursued taking a stake in the Falcon's ownership group, led by Arthur M. Blank. The opportunity of becoming a minority owner fulfilled one of Warrick's professional goals to expand his knowledge and experience in the areas of NFL team management, branding and operations. He is excited to be a part of the Falcons team and, in particular, to work with Mr. Blank. "During his tenure with the Falcons and throughout his NFL career, Warrick represented the highest of NFL standards on and off the field. Warrick has a special affinity for the Falcons, as we do for him, and we are very happy he will be back in the Falcons family representing our club as a limited partner." -Arthur M. Blank

Thinking outside the box...

Warrick saw the position as an investment that could lead to bigger and better things. He wants to continue to learn all aspects of the business from Mr. Blank. The deal made Warrick the fifth person to have minority ownership in the Falcons. He also became a member of the Atlanta Falcons Board of Advisors, which is comprised of other limited partners including, Ronald E. Canakaris, Douglas J. Hertz, and Ed Mendel. The advisory board supports Falcons business and player development efforts and serves as Falcons ambassadors in the community. Warrick hopes that his role as a limited partner can help younger players if they need advice or if they just want to talk. He wants to be that ear or that voice of reasoning because he understands both sides of the game.
