Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said during a conference call Saturday that veteran S Dashon Goldson had a good workout for them and they’re currently in talks with his representatives about a potential deal, per Vaughn McClure.
- Goldson is also in talks with a few other teams, per McClure.
Earlier in the day, news broke that Falcons first-round pick Keanu Neal is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with an injury he sustained during Thursday’s preseason game, so they’re clearly looking at some available options to bolster their depth for the start of the season.
Goldson previously visited with the Rams, but didn’t receive an offer from the team.
Goldson, 31, was in the the fourth year of his five-year, $41.25 million contract that included $22 million guaranteed when he was released in a move that freed up $8 million in available cap space for the Redskins.
In 2015, Goldson appeared in 15 games for the Redskins and recorded 110 tackles, one interception returned for a touchdown, a forced fumble and three pass defenses for Washington.
