There are now four teams that have reversed cost-cutting measures that cost their non-player employees some money during the lockout.

Joining the Jets, Dolphins, and Chiefs are the Falcons.

Per a team source, Falcons owner Arthur Blank will refund the wages lost during a 10-day unpaid furlough.  Also, merit increases retroactive to March 1 will be paid to all affected team employees.

The best news is that all employees of every team are back to work.  They may be busier than they ever wanted to be, but after a long, largely quiet offseason, they’d have it no other way.
