Celestin, 23, originally signed on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota back in 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Falcons but wound up being cut loose coming out of the preseason.

Celestin had brief stints on the Chargers and Jets’ practice squad this past season.

During his four-year college career at Minnesota, Celestin recorded 217 tackles, 3.5 sacks, an interception returned for a touchdown, three forced fumbles, a recovery and seven pass defenses over the course of 40 games.
