Falcons work out veteran LB Will Compton, per report

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.

Compton has played in 92 career games (40 starts) since entering the league in 2013.

Over those nine seasons, he’s totaled 358 tackles (210 solo), three interceptions, four forced fumbles and 12 passes defended.

His best season came in 2016 when he started 15 games for Washington.

Compton played in two games for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021.

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. https://twitter.com/FieldYates/status/1577358149765550081?s=20&t=ozSnH4apHyCssM4GZybgCg
