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.
