Peters has started 38 games over his first three seasons, working in a four-man rotation at defensive tackle for the Falcons. The 2010 third-rounder recorded a three-year low 15 tackles in 2012 and could be battling for a roster spot this offseason. He gets pushed around versus the run.

Falcons coach Mike Smith indicated Monday that DT Corey Peters (foot, PUP) needs to get in game shape before he's activated to the 53-man roster.
Peters came on as one of the most promising young interior linemen in football last season, before suffering a stress fracture during the 2012 offseason program. Smith was vague about Peters' availability, saying he could be activated as soon as next week or 21 days from now. Peters' return would add another talented body to an Atlanta defense that has scuffled versus the run.

Falcons DT Corey Peters (foot) remains without a timetable for a return.
"Right now, Corey is only working on the side (with the training staff) and only working in the training room basically in a rehabilitation mode," coach Mike Smith said. Peters has yet to practice in camp, making him a candidate for the reserve/PUP list. If Peters isn't ready for Week 1, the Falcons are expected to roll the dice with first-round bust Peria Jerry - who's supposedly having a strong camp - in his absence.
