Vaughn McClure reports that the Falcons worked out six free agents on Monday including DE Sterling Bailey, DE Pat O’Connor, DE Devin Taylor, DE Nicholas Williams, DE Jonathan Woodard and LB Lavar Edwards.
Taylor recently tried out for the Vikings but was signed to a contract following the session.
Taylor, 27, is a former fourth-round pick of the Lions back in 2013. He played out his four-year, $2,460,584 rookie contract with the Lions before signing a one-year contract with the Giants this past May.
Unfortunately, the Giants cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
In 2016, Taylor appeared in all 16 games and recorded 28 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble, a safety and a pass defense for the Lions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 108 edge rusher out of 109 qualifying players.
