VIDEO: Relive former Georgia safety Quincy Mauger’s interception against the Steelers

Atlanta Falcons safety Quincy Mauger intercepted his first NFL pass during Sunday’s exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In the third quarter, Mauger intercepted a pass by Steelers quarterback Josh Dobbs on the Steelers' 33-yard line. The former Tennessee quarterback was tripped up and tossed the ball down the left sideline, but Mauger put both hands under the ball for a catch. 

In May, Mauger signed with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent.

In his four seasons at Georgia, Mauger recorded 128 tackles, 0.5 sacks, seven interceptions, 12 passes defended and one forced fumble.

Mauger is currently listed as the fourth-team strong safety behind Ricardo Allen, Sharrod Neasman and Damontae Kazee respectively.
