Falcons talking to Grady Jackson
The AJC reports that the Falcons were in discussions with free agent defensive tackle Grady Jackson on Friday morning about a potential reunion between the two parties. Per the report, the team and Jackson are currently working on terms of the deal and he also took a physical.
Jackson was cut by the Falcons last October after starting the first seven games of the season, recording 20 tackles and 1 sack. He finished the year as a reserve with the Jacksonville Jaguars where he worked with current Falcons head coach Mike Smith and defensive line coach Ray Hamilton. Early speculation in the off-season indicated that it was possible the Falcons were willing to re-sign Jackson, although nothing came of it in the following months in free agency.
Jackson could replace current starting nose tackle Montavious Stanley in the lineup, who is filling in for the injured Trey Lewis.
