FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons announced the signing of cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson on Saturday.

The deal is a one-year extension for Wreh-Wilson, who also signed a one-year deal prior to the 2017 season.

Wreh-Wilson, 28, is entering his sixth season in the NFL, the past two of which have been spent with the Falcons. Last season, Wreh-Wilson played in eight games for the Falcons with one start; he registered four combined tackles and defended one pass.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound corner was drafted in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. In his career, Wreh-Wilson has recorded 91 combined tackles, 15 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one interception.

His return provides key cornerback depth for the Falcons, and he was a contributor on special teams down the stretch last season. The signing prevents Wreh-Wilson from hitting free agency when the new league year begins on March 14 at 4 p.m. ET.
