Cornerback Brandon Boykin is looking for a new team following his release from the Carolina Panthers earlier this week and he now has a visit scheduled for early next week.
According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Boykin is set to visit with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday.
Boykin, who played for the Pittsburgh Steelers last season, was surprisingly released by the Panthers after signing a one-year contract with them back in March.
One would think at this point that Boykin’s market value will remain at the minimum veteran salary level.
The Falcons currently have two cornerbacks on their roster who once called Pittsburgh home in DeMarcus Van Dyke and C.J. Goodwin. Goodwin, a former wide receiver, was asked to switch to cornerback after signing with the Falcons, who will be without cornerback Jalen Collins for the first four games of the 2016 season due to a suspension.
