Whether or not the Falcons have had a good offseason or not remains to be seen. But owner Arthur Blank has.

Via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Blank announced yesterday that he was cancer-free, four weeks after surgery for prostate cancer.

He’s still going through post-operative procedures and will have regular check-ups, but a team spokesman said “He’s doing great and is back to work.”

Blank made the remarks at the Georgia Technology Summit in front of a group of 1,500 people, but didn’t comment further, spending the day talking about business issues and the Falcons’ new stadium.
