Ravens free agent safety Darian Stewart is on his way to visit the Atlanta Falcons, according to NFL sources.

Stewart previously visited the Denver Broncos.

He has also drawn interest from the New York Giants and other teams, per sources, and a potential return to the Ravens hasn't been ruled out.

Stewart was the Ravens' starting strong safety, finishing the season with 53 tackles, one forced fumble and an interception. He began the season as the starting free safety before shifting to strong safety when Will Hill returned from a six-game NFL suspension.

In the playoffs, Stewart had three tackles, one interception, two pass deflections and a fumble recovery.

Stewart was benched and replaced by Jeromy Miles after a rough game against the New Orleans Saints.

Since rejoining the starting lineup, Stewart went on a bit of a tear and had arguably his top game of the season during the Ravens' 30-17 AFC wild-card playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field.

Stewart intercepted Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the end zone in the fourth quarter, picking off a pass intended for wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Stewart blocked a punt that Kamar Aiken returned for a touchdown. Stewart also intercepted a pass against the Houston Texans.

Stewart signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract last spring.
