Ishmael (shoulder) signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Falcons on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Falcons needed to bring back depth in their secondary, and Ishmael will fit in well as a top-three safety next to Ricardo Allen and Keanu Neal. The 25-year-old only played nine games for Atlanta in 2016 due to a season-ending shoulder injury in Week 13 but was able to record 52 tackles in his limited time.
Ishmael (shoulder) will be placed on IR, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Ishmael suffered a shoulder injury during Week 14's win over the Rams and was unable to return. His presence will be missed on special teams, but won't have much of an impact on the Falcons' defense.
Ishmael (shoulder) didn't return to Sunday's game in Los Angeles, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Primarily a special teamer the past seven games, only four of Ishmael's 52 tackles this season have been recorded during that stretch. As such, he doesn't hold any sway in IDP formats, even when healthy.
