Sign Corey Peters.
As an editor of an Atlanta Falcons website, I know what Corey Peters can bring to this team.
Peters would bring potential, a good pass-rush from the interior, but a guy that can also stuff the run. Pretty much, this kid is the exact replica of Corey Liuget two years ago. (Imagine two Liuget’s in the middle).
This is what Bleacher Report had to say about Peters.
“A rotational player on the Atlanta Falcons defensive line this year, Corey Peters is good enough to start for an NFL defense but will likely be available at a much cheaper price than some of the top defensive tackles, such as Ndamukong Suh and Terrance Knighton, who could be hitting the market.
In his fifth year with the Falcons, Peters’ playing time declined slightly as he only started two games in 2014. Nonetheless, the 6’3”, 305-pounddefensive tackle continued to be a solid presence against the run while also utilizing his quickness to bring some pressures as a pass-rusher.”
Telesco should sign him to a two or three year, 10 million dollar contract and lock him in the starting spot at defensive tackle.
