Atlanta Falcons: Team works out two defensive backs

3:42 pm September 25, 2012, by D. Orlando Ledbetter

FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons worked out a couple of defensive backs — Marlin Jackson and Syd’quan Thompson — today.

Neither of the players were signed. The Falcons generally consider it their due diligence to work out some of the top free agents on Tuesdays during the regular season.

Jackson, 29, 6-foot, 196-pounds, was a first-round draft pick by the Colts in 2005. He has started 32 NFL games and played in 56.

Thompson, 25, 5-9, 191 pounds, was a seventh round draft pick by the Broncos in 2010.

With the season-ending injury to Brent Grimes, Dominique Franks, who was cut at the end of training camp and later re-signed, currently is the Falcons starting nickel back.
