Corey Peters is officially a Falcon


Happy Birthday, Corey! Now, here’s ton of money from the Falcons…

Today, on his 22nd birthday, Corey Peters signed a deal worth up to $3.295 million with the Atlanta Falcons.  According to the National Football Post, Peters received a $767,000 signing bonus and base salaries of $320,000, $405,000, $490,000 and $575,000.

Peters is in a great situation in Atlanta.  There is plenty of playing time to be won at defensive tackle for the Falcons and Corey has a legitimate shot at earning a starting role in his rookie season.  Go ahead and add him to the flood of Wildcats to keep an eye on in the NFL.  We have a whole lot of box scores to check this fall.

Congratulations, Corey.  Now get out there and rip off some NFC South heads.
