FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons have re-signed linebacker Mike Peterson, who was with them the last three years.

Peterson also played for coach Mike Smith when Smith was the defensive co-ordinator in Jacksonville.

Peterson can play inside and outside LB, and with middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu battling a chest injury, Peterson will provide some depth for the Falcons.

Last year, Peterson played in 15 games with five starts. He made 27 tackles (16 solo) while adding one interception and two passes defenced. He has 1,611 tackles (953 solo), 21 1-2 sacks, 19 interceptions, 52 passes defenced, nine forced fumbles and nine fumble recoveries during his 13-year NFL career.
