The Atlanta Falcons are meeting with free-agent defensive lineman Tyeler Davison, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Davison spent the 2018 campaign with the New Orleans Saints, playing in 14 games and finishing with 23 tackles, a couple of sacks and a forced fumble.

The 26-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Fresno State University, was originally selected by the Saints in the fifth round (154th pick overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.

He appeared in all 16 contests during his rookie year, totaling 18 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Then, the following season, Davison became a full-time starter for New Orleans, tallying 23 tackles through 15 games.

The Phoenix native then participated in all 16 games in 2017, recording 31 tackles and a pair of forced fumbles.

The Falcons have a need at defensive tackle, so Davison could represent a viable, cheap option to fit the bill.

Atlanta is coming off of a 2018 season in which it won just seven games and did not look all that competitive at any one point during the year. It also marked the first time since 2015 that the Falcons did not make the playoffs.

Dan Quinn's club won 10 games and nabbed a Wild Card berth in 2017, but fell to the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in the postseason.

Of course, during the 2016 campaign, the Falcons made it all the way to the Super Bowl before famously blowing a 28-3 lead in what ended up being a devastating 34-28 overtime loss to the New England Patriots.

The Falcons have made the playoffs just twice since the 2013 campaign.
