The Atlanta Falcons worked out veteran linebacker Will Compton, ESPN’s Field Yates reported on Tuesday afternoon. Compton, 33, has played for three teams over his nine-year NFL career, including two seasons with the Tennessee Titans (2018 and 2020).
According to Yates, the Falcons aren’t expected to sign Compton right now, but he could be a late-season target if the team is fighting for a playoff spot.
Coveted part-time LB and podcaster @_willcompton had a very good workout with the Falcons, I’m told. It’s sounding like a deal with Atlanta is not expected to get done right now, but a possible signing later in the season for a playoff push remains very likely.
