Ex-Titans LB Will Compton to work out for Falcons




 

"Year 10" is on the verge of going from a catchy punchline often heard on the 'Bussin' With The Boys' podcast into a possible reality for former Tennessee Titans linebacker and social media sensation, Will Compton.

Yesterday afternoon, the podcast extraordinaire broke the news that he has an upcoming workout scheduled with the Atlanta Falcons later today.

The veteran linebacker has hilariously teased this inevitable workout for weeks now in the most Will Compton way possible (warning: NSFW language).

This move makes sense for a variety of reasons.

For starters, Compton's resume has proven that he's versatile and cerebral enough to contribute wherever he's needed, regardless if that's on defense and/or special teams.

He also has relatively recent experience with the Falcons' current Head Coach, Arthur Smith, and current defensive coordinator, Dean Pees.

The 10th-year hopeful had two stints in Tennessee, where he admittedly grew fond of both coaches. Back in 2018, Pees was the defensive coordinator for the Titans, while Compton was primarily a core special teams player who occasionally contributed on defense as well.

In total, Compton accounted for 16 tackles, one pass defended, and one forced fumble in 12 games.

Smith, on the other hand, was with Compton for both stints in Tennessee. The Falcons head coach was the Titans' tight ends coach back in 2018 before being promoted to offensive coordinator from 2019-2020.

Although the former Titan never played for any of Smith's units, the two grew a mutual respect towards one another, and so much so that Smith has already been on the infamous bus on two separate occasions.

"Year 10" seems to be trending in the right direction for the Nebraska product. However, only time will tell whether this workout ends up translating into a contract offer or not.
