Let the conspiracy theories begin. Earlier today, a Houston area man was caught flying a drone over the Atlanta Falcons practice facility.

he Atlanta Falcons have been practicing
at Rice University in the days leading up to the Super Bowl, and an eager fan apparently got crafty in trying to sneak a peek.
“With the field situated next to a residential area abutting the Rice campus, there was extra SECURITY between the edge of the field (with a fence and high hedges) and the neighborhood, so the Falcons could feel secure running a practice as though they were at their home facility,” today’s pool report issued by the NFL said.
The drone operator was described only as an area resident, and it wasn’t clear if he or she would face any charges. But the device was grounded, the report said.
It’s obvious that the Patriots have nothing to do with this but the jokes are still going to fly.
