Veteran cornerback R.W. McQuarters was one of a handful of defensive backs to get a tryout from the Atlanta Falcons, a league source said.

McQuarters spent the last three seasons with the New York Giants, and won a Super Bowl ring with the team. He’s got skill as a nickel back and has experience on special teams as well.

The Falcons have lost starting cornerback Brian Williams for the season. The tryouts also included another former Giant, Charlie Peprah.

McQuarters has 11 years of experience and made previous stops in Detroit, Chicago and San Francisco. He was a first-round draft pick out of Oklahoma State by the 49ers in 1998.
