Falcons Working Out Four Including George Iloka, T.J. McDonald


According to Mike Garafolo, the Falcons are hosting safeties T.J. McDonald and George Iloka for a visit on Tuesday. 

The full list of tryouts for Atlanta includes:

  1. S T.J. McDonald
  2. S George Iloka
  3. DL Jonathan Bonner
  4. DL Hunter Dimick

Atlanta is looking for help at the safety position after losing Keanu Neal to a season-ending Achilles injury. 

Iloka, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He was in the third year of his five-year, $30 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed when the Bengals elected to cut him loose during the preseason. 

The Vikings later signed Iloka to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum of $790,000. After becoming a free agent in 2019, Iloka signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Cowboys. However, Dallas released him coming out of the preseason. 

In 2018, Iloka appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and recorded 16 tackles, no interceptions, and a forced fumble.

McDonald, 28, is a former third-round pick of the Rams back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.926 million rookie contract before signing a one-year, $1.34 million contract with the Dolphins in 2017. 

The Dolphins elected to sign McDonald to a four-year, $24 million extension that includes $10 million at the start of the 2017 season. Miami released him coming out of the preseason. 

In 2018, McDonald appeared in 14 games for the Dolphins and recorded 86 tackles, three interceptions, a fumble recovery and five pass defenses.
