ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday the Falcons are one of a few teams that have made an offer to free agent safety Stevie Brown, formerly of the New York Giants.
Schefter listed the Falcons, Giants, Cowboys, Raiders and Titans as teams that have showed interest.
Brown was one of the more talented defensive backs in the NFL until he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in August of 2013. Last year he started eight games or the Giants as he tried to regain his former form.
The Falcons are trying to replace veteran Dwight Lowery, who signed with the Colts as a free agent. Last year’s third round pick, Dez Southward, might get a chance to start at one of the safety positions. Atlanta might target another safety in the draft.
Brown will turn 28 on July 17.
