Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Falcons will host free agent OT Dieugot Joseph sometime this week.
Free agent offensive tackle Dieugot Joseph is visiting the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons this week, according to a league source #NFL— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) May 27, 2019
Joseph has never appeared in an NFL game, but spent 2017 with the Chicago Bears, Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings. From 2018-2019, Joseph was on the New York Jets practice squad. On September 3, 2018, Joseph was signed to the New York Jets’ practice squad. He signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets on December 31, 2018, but was waived on May 14, 2019.
Washington is also hosting Dieugot Joseph at some point this week, so he may not end up in Atlanta at all. The Falcons however appear to still want to add some offensive line depth, even after signing James Carpenter and Jamon Brown in free agency, and using first round selections in the 2019 NFL Draft on Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary. If Joseph did join, he’d be competing for the last spot on the line with the likes of Matt Gono, Sean Harlow, and Adam Gettis.
