ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have re-signed safety Charles Godfrey, an unrestricted free agent who played in eight games in 2015.

Godfrey, a third-round pick by Carolina in 2008, started 75 games with the Panthers before signing with Atlanta as a free agent during the 2014 season.

He has 11 career interceptions in eight seasons, including a career-high five with Carolina in 2010.
