As expected, the Falcons picked up the fifth-year option on safety Keanu Neal on Wednesday.
Neal, who missed most of last season after suffering a season-ending knee injury in the season opener, was drafted in the first round (17th overall) of the 2017 draft.
Neal, 23, went to the Pro Bowl after the 2017 season.
