Falcons Worked Out ILB Dan Connor

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The former Panther, Giant and Cowboy would add depth for the linebacking corps.

One more workout to note today: Dan Connor.

PFT has learned, via a league source, that Connor worked out for the Falcons.

As is the case with Bear Pascoe, this has to be viewed as a depth signing aimed at shoring up a position of need ahead of the 2014 NFL Draft, assuming the Falcons go through with it.

Connor has always been a solid player, someone who is capable enough against the run and fits the thumper profile of an inside linebacker to a T. His biggest problem has been health, as he's repeatedly struggled to stay on the field for an entire season. Last year, he was basically a reserve in the few games he actively participated in.

If his health checks out, it's not a bad idea for the Falcons to bring him in and let him compete for a spot at inside linebacker, where the Falcons currently project to have Paul Worrilow, Akeem Dent and maybe Sean Weatherspoon. We'll see what comes of this.
