Derrick Shelby back to Falcons on one-year deal
The Falcons released defensive end Derrick Shelby early this month, but he won’t be signing with another team for the 2018 season.
Shelby signed a four-year deal with the Falcons before the 2016 season and played in six games that year before tearing his Achilles. He returned to play in every game and make 14 starts last season, recording 30 tackles and a sack in the process.
The Falcons have seen free agent defensive linemen Adrian Clayborn and Dontari Poe leave for other teams since free agency opened.
