Falcons give second chance to Hageman following 2017 release

Fri Apr 19 12:32pm ET

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have signed Ra'Shede Hageman, giving a second chance to the defensive tackle the team released in 2017 after he was charged with domestic violence.

The 28-year-old Hageman, a second-round pick from Minnesota in 2014, started a combined 16 games in 2015 and 2016. He has been out of the league since his release by the Falcons following an incident with his girlfriend in 2016.

General manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement released by the team on Friday the Falcons believe in giving opportunities ''when people take responsibility for their actions and are committed to change.'' He said Hageman ''met the obligations of the court'' and has performed community service while also completing ''course work and rehab.''

Dimitroff says Hageman, who agreed to a one-year deal, understands the Falcons won't tolerate additional ''abusive behavior in any form.''

Antonio Brown May 21 7:43pm ET

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown was not present during practice Tuesday, May 21.

Fantasy Spin: Brown was with the team earlier in the preseason and should return for at least the mandatory minicamp. He will be working in a new offense and with a new quarterback but should still be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Frank Gore May 21 6:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (foot, ankle) is not participating in practices because he is coming off foot and ankle injuries.

Fantasy Spin: Gore is part of a crowded backfield in Buffalo, so his role is uncertain at this point. He has posted solid numbers over the last few seasons and could be a late-round pick in standard leagues if he receives a solid role in the running game.
