Falcons coach Dan Quinn said he has talked to former defensive end Dwight Freeney, but noted that the team is committed to evaluating the current players on the 90-man roster on Tuesday.

Quinn also noted that he has talked to other former players, too.

“I haven’t even found out if he’s ready to play yet,” Quinn said. “I know he was pretty committed to golf. He’s such a competitor. But our conversations haven’t been about playing.

“When we drafted (Takkarist McKinley), that was someone I wanted him to connect with. But we haven’t talked about playing. If he does (bring it up), he knows we’re going down the line of looking at our team here first.”

Freeney, a future Hall of Famer, previously said he wants to continue playing.
