Brandon Boykin to visit Falcons on Monday


Well-traveled cornerback Brandon Boykin will be traveling to a new NFL city.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Boykin will visit the Falcon on Monday.

A fourth-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2012, Philly traded him last year to the Steelers. Boykin barely contributed in one season with Pittsburgh, and he then signed with Carolina as a free agent.

Carolina’s decision to dump Boykin came only days after coach Ron Rivera explained that it would be impossible to fully assess the team’s rookie cornerbacks before they can engage in bump-and-run coverage and other contact drills at training camp. Apparently, they saw enough from Boykin to move on.

Whether Boykin can show the Falcons enough to get a job will be determined on Monday.

  1. Boykin the Falcons sure use another cornerback as Jalen Collins will miss the beginning of the season for being stoopid.

  2. Don’t worry falcon fans! You will start 5-0(unless u play panthers) and everyone will pick you to win south! Then u will finish season as a 6-10 team!
    Matt ryan is the NFC’s Andy Dalton!

  3. Tragically, the Falcons could really use this guy. If he could get his attitude under control, he would be a great addition.

  4. Atlanta had the worst pass rush in the league last season and the news broke today that their best edge rusher is getting moved to SAM LB.

    That front office has been 100% obsessed with defensive backs for years now. It’s like they want the baddest secondary in the league tackling running backs when they blow through their wet paper bag front 7.
