The Atlanta Falcons chose not to add a cornerback in the 2024 NFL draft but they may not be done addressing the position yet. According to Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz, free-agent cornerback Jerry Jacobs is visiting with the Falcons on Tuesday.

Jacobs, 26, is a former undrafted free agent who spent the last three seasons on the Detroit Lions. The Atlanta native has appeared in 40 games with 29 starts since 2021. Jacobs started 12 games for the Lions last season, recording three interceptions and eight passes defended.

The Falcons previously signed Kevin King and Antonio Hamilton, both of whom have starting experience. Second-year cornerback Clark Phillips III is also in line to play a bigger role this season.

We still don’t know who will start opposite A.J. Terrell in 2024, but Jacobs is an intriguing option if he gets signed by Atlanta. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Jacobs also has a visit with the Vikings scheduled for later in the week.
