Rand Getlin of NFL Media reports that the Falcons are signing OL Tom Compton to a contract on Tuesday.
There’s an obvious connection to the Falcons for Compton, seeing as Kyle Shanahan is their offensive coordinator and previously worked with Compton in Washington.
Compton, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2012. Compton spent four years in Washington before testing the open market for the first time this year as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2015, Compton appeared in 13 games for the Redskins and played a total of 236 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
