Falcons safety Keanu Neal, who was the 17th player selected in the NFL draft, has been working out with Seattle safety Kam Chancellor.
The Falcons report for training camp on Wednesday, July 27th.
Neal, who's slated to replace William Moore as the starting strong safety for the Falcons, posted a video of him and Chancellor working out on his instragram account.
Chancellor, a four-time Pro Bowler and two-time second-team All-Pro, is one of the premier safeties in the league. He played for Falcons coach Dan Quinn, when he was Seattle’s defensive coordinator from 2013-2014.
Chancellor, a fifth-round pick in 2010, broke into the league when Quinn was Seattle’s assistant head coach/defensive line coach.
Neal, who played at Florida, impressed his new teammates with a strong offseason.
“He can move with the best of them,” cornerback Desmond Trufant said. “That’s what I was really impressed with. He just has to continue to grow mentally and things like that, but he’s looking good.”
