Mike at My Soccer Blog comments that Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons, is looking at expanding his ventures, and is including Major League Soccer as one option. The gist:

Arthur Blank, owner of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons, wants his sports operation to expand outside of American football and Major League Soccer is high on his list. Blank said he is "actively looking at" bringing a Major League Soccer expansion team to Atlanta. He described it as "in the exploratory stage" and said the team would need a soccer-specific stadium. "We're out looking at stadium sites right now ... in a variety of places," he said.
