The Falcons are bringing safety Kemal Ishmael back to the team for the 2018 season.
Ishmael became a free agent when the league year opened in March and a month on the open market didn’t lead him to a new home. The Falcons announced on Wednesday that Ishmael agreed to a one-year deal.
The 2018 season will be Ishmael’s sixth with the Falcons after joining the team as a 2013 seventh-round pick. He played every game last season and started once on defense while appearing on just under 80 percent of the team’s special teams snaps.
