Dieugot Joseph hasn’t had a chance to see the field for a regular season game during his brief career, but the lineman is apparently generating interest as a free agent. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports (via Twitter) that Joseph is set to visit with the Redskins and Falcons this week.
The FIU product went undrafted during the 2017 draft, but he quickly caught on with the Bears. He hung around with Chicago’s practice squad until mid-September, when the Ravens signed him to their active roster. The offensive tackle joined the Vikings towards the end of that campaign, earning him an eventual reserve/future contract.
Joseph was released by Minnesota last preseason, and he spent the majority of last season on the Jets’ practice squad. He inked a futures contract with the team in December, but he was let go by the organization earlier this month.
The Falcons have done plenty to revamp their offensive line this offseason. The team added two rookie linemen during the first round of the draft (Chris Lindstrom, Kaleb McGary), and they also added a number of free agents (a grouping that includes James Carpenter and Jamon Brown). Meanwhile, the Redskins haven’t done a whole lot to add to their offensive line corps; the team signed free agent Ereck Flowers, and they also added a pair of rookie linemen during the draft.
