Report: Falcons Re-Sign DL Peria Jerry

According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Falcons have re-signed free agent DL Peria Jerry.

A former first-round pick, Jerry has been labeled a bust for Atlanta, despite still being just 29 years old.

Jerry has been more effective as an interior pass rusher than versus the run.  Last season, Jerry registered 33 tackles and 3.5 sacks while starting 14 games.

Pro Football Focus ranked Jerry No. 64 out of 69 defensive tackles and nose tackles.
