ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have re-signed Corey Peters, one of the team's three defensive tackles who were unrestricted free agents, to a one-year contract.

The Falcons' other free-agent defensive tackles are Jonathan Babineaux and Peria Jerry.

Peters, a third-round pick in 2010, had his 2013 season end with a right Achilles injury on Dec. 23 that required surgery. He has started in 53 of his 56 games.

He made 15 starts in 2013, when he set a career high with five sacks and had 48 tackles. He has nine career sacks.

Peters was chosen the Falcons' 2011 Walter Payton Man of the Year.

Terms of the one-year contract were not immediately released.
