The Falcons have re-signed Biermann, ESPN.com reports.

Biermann had the best statistical season of his career in 2014, recording 77 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and three pass defensed.

Biermann had a great bounce back year one season after being limited to two games with a torn Achilles. He picked a great year to have a healthy and productive season, as he'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The Falcons are expected to have a fair amount of cap room this offseason, so they'll likely pursue Biermann if they can get him for the right price.

Biermann racked up five total tackles and 1.5 sacks against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Biermann (Achilles) tallied one tackle against the Titans on Saturday.

Biermann appeared hesitant to go all out at times, and it doesn't look like he's completely comfortable with his surgically repaired Achilles tendon. He'll likely get some work in Thursday's preseason finale, and he's still expected to start at defensive end, but he could lose playing time if the injury doesn't let him go all out for the full 60 minutes.

Falcons DE/OLB Kroy Biermann (Achilles') will be limited at the beginning of training camp.

Biermann tore his Achilles' in Week 2. He'll have every third practice day off and won't play in at least the first preseason game. Coach Mike Smith fully expects Biermann to be 100 percent for the opener. The Falcons need Biermann to return to form, as he's one of their most experienced edge players.

Falcons DE/LB Kroy Biermann (Achilles) has begun on-field work.

Biermann blew out his Achilles during Week 2 of last season. He's ahead of schedule and figures to be near full strength by the time training camp rolls around. Biermann is a valuable and versatile piece in Mike Nolan's hybrid scheme.

Falcons placed DE/LB Kroy Biermann (Achilles) and FB Bradie Ewing (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

The loss of Biermann is huge; he was a movable chess piece in Mike Nolan's defense, playing every snap and operating as both an up-front and second-level player. Look for the Falcons to lean on Jonathan Babineaux more at defensive end going forward. Ewing's loss is less significant; he only played 14 snaps through the first two games. Still, the Biermann injury is big and could cause a ripple effect on an Atlanta defense that already had average talent.
