Veteran free-agent DT talking to Falcons

Panthers'' Moorehead would help depleted defensive line

Published on: 03/06/08

The Falcons could be getting some help to re-stock their depleted defensive tackle position.

Carolina free agent Kindal Moorehead was scheduled to meet with team officials Thursday and take a physical before the weekend, according to a person familiar with the situation .

If the Falcons and Morehead (6-foot-2, 285 pounds) reach an agreement, the five-year veteran could compete for playing time with Jonathan Babineaux at the under-tackle spot in Atlanta's 4-3 defensive front. Morehead spent most of his career in Carolina playing behind standout Kris Jenkins. He started 13 games and had 9.5 sacks.

The Falcons also need to acquire at least one nose tackle following projected starter Trey Lewis's recent freak accident that led to him re-injuring his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
