Falcons Have Interest In A.J. Hawk

The Falcons have interest in veteran linebacker A.J. Hawk, sources tell Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (on Twitter). The team has four linebackers injured, so Hawk would make a lot of sense for Dan Quinn‘s squad. One month into the season, Atlanta finds itself without Sean Weatherspoon, Paul Worrilow, De’Vondre Campbell, and Deion Jones. Jones suffered a calf injury in Week 4 and his status for this upcoming week is currently unknown. A.J. Hawk (Vertical)

Hawk, who spent the first nine years of his NFL career in Green Bay, signed a two-year deal with the Bengals in 2015, but ultimately only played out half of that contract before being given his release. In his lone season in Cincinnati, Hawk was a part-time contributor at linebacker, picking up 24 tackles and a sack.

Hawk auditioned for Miami roughly three weeks ago, but that workout did not lead to a deal.
