The Atlanta Falcons still could use help at linebacker, but they won't be turning to a player who last played for their bitter rival.
Vilma's workout apparently went OK, although there were league-wide concerns about the health of the 32-year-old's knee.
The Falcons lost starter Sean Weatherspoon to a season-ending Achilles tear, leaving a void at inside linebacker in their new 3-4 base scheme. Paul Worrilow and Joplo Bartu, two undrafted signees last season, continue to work as the starters this offseason.
General manager Thomas Dimitroff said this about the linebacker situation late last week: "We are continuing to research all possibilities at the linebacker position to make sure that we continue to fortify our linebacker group."
