Meet the Falcons' new man in the middle

Peria Jerry, the Atlanta Falcons' first-round pick in April's draft, almost never played a down of football despite coming from a family that has put two cousins in the NFL and numerous others on Division-I football scholarships. Just a few years later he's expected to compete for a starting job with the Falcons this fall. Jerry spoke with Times sports editor Brent Holloway recently about what finally convinced him to play and stick with football, how he spends his free time in North Mississippi, and how he's recovering from a minor knee sprain.
