The Falcons saw their first-round pick and safety Keanu Neal sustain an injury in a preseason loss to the Dolphins, which will cause him to miss some time.
With Neal set for minor surgery followed by a 3-4 week recovery, Atlanta is acting fast, and will reportedly work out free-agent safety Dashon Goldson, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Goldson, 31, is reportedly working out for the Falcons on Saturday.
Goldson was a two-time Pro Bowler and one-time first-team All-Pro for the 49ers. He originally entered the league with San Francisco as a fourth-round pick out of Washington in 2007.
Goldson had brief stays with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington football team from 2013-15.
Free Agent safety Dashon Goldson is working out for the #Falcons tomorrow, source said. Makes sense with the Keanu Neal injury.
