Falcons give Corey Peters a chance to come back


The Falcons are offering one of their own a chance to prove himself again.

The team just announced they had re-signed defensive tackle Corey Peters to a one-year deal.

Peters started 15 games for the Falcons last year, until a December Achilles injury which required surgery ended his season.

He’ll be pushing his rehabilitation right up to the start of the season, and once he’s back, he’ll be betting on himself matching his best season for a chance at free agency again a year from now.

The Falcons are in the midst of overhauling both lines this offseason, but Peters was one of their few consistent players last year, so giving him the chance after the injury was the right thing to do and potentially helpful.

    “Potentially helpful”? What does that mean exactly?

    Him and Worrilow were our only pure run stoppers last year, didn’t want to part with him.

    A healthy Corey Peters is a very good DT for any team. He’s a solid starter and a good teammate. I hope it pans out for him!

    Don’t forget to re-sign DT Peria Jerry! (I swear I’m not psycho). 2009 1st round bust is 30 years old but a 1 year veteran minimum contract for a player who has been in the system of Mike Nolan for 2 years he is at least a nice camp body who can help out in case of more injuries. Plus Comrade Dimitroff always gives all the chances to his draft picks he can to save face.

    No Jacob your not physco. Just dumb. That make no sense at all. Peria may as well follow Snelling and retire.
