49ers Working Out Veteran DL Tyson Jackson

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting that the Falcons are bringing veteran DL Tyson Jackson for a workout on Tuesday.

The Rams recently brought Jackson in for a visit, so it appears as though the level of interest in him is beginning to pick up.

Jackson, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2014. He signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Falcons back in 2014 and was set to make a base salary of $3.5 million over the next two years when the Falcons released him back this past March in a move that freed up $2.65 million of available cap space.

In 2016, Jackson appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and recorded 13 tackles, no sacks and a pass defense.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
