The Atlanta Falcons have officially signed veteran safety Sharrod Neasman, the team announced Friday.
Neasman, 28, first joined the Falcons in 2016 and has been with the team each year since, appearing in 41 games for Atlanta. During his four seasons with the Falcons, Neasman has recorded 53 tackles, two tackles for a loss, four passes defensed and one fumble recovery.
Neasman's biggest impact for Atlanta has come on special teams. In 2019 Neasman participated in 73.8 percent of the Falcons' special teams snaps, the most of any player. The Falcons have a crowded safety position that should be interesting to follow throughout training camp. Neasman joins a group that also includes Ricardo Allen, Keanu Neal, Damontae Kazee, Jamal Carter and Chris Cooper.
