FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons, who are seeking to upgrade their linebacker corps this offseason, will host free agent James Laurinaitus on Monday and Tuesday, according to ESPN report.

Laurinaitus was cut by the Rams on Feb. 19. He was a second round pick in 2009.

He recorded more than 100 tackles in each of his seven seasons with the Rams. His play is perceived to have dipped over the past three seasons.

He visited with the New Orleans Saints last Tuesday, but left without signing a deal.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s D. Orlando Ledbetter joins CineSport’s Noah Coslov to identify the players that the Falcons may be able to land with the 17th pick in the Draft & discuss impressive players on offense.
