--- ---

Free agent defensive tackle Terrell McClain’s search for a new employer continued when he visited the Atlanta Falcons on Friday.

McClain huddled with the Dallas Cowboys earlier this week and already has sat down with the Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers since he was released by the Washington Redskins last week.

The 29-year-old McClain signed a four-year, $21 million deal with the Redskins but collected just 17 tackles and two sacks in 12 games last season. He missed four consecutive games late in the season with a toe injury.

McClain was originally selected by the Carolina Panthers in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He also played for the New England Patriots and Houston Texans before stints with the Cowboys and Redskins.
