The Atlanta Falcons have signed defensive tackle Corey Peters to a one-year deal.

Peters is coming off his best season – recording a career-high five sacks – but he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers last season.

His one-year deal is clearly a prove-it deal; if he performs as he did this past season, he’s going to be treated to a lucrative, multi-year contract.

Peters is the first of Atlanta’s free agents to be re-signed. The Falcons have also been in talks with defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux and center Joe Hawley.
