FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons signed Ra'Shede Hageman to a one-year deal on Friday, giving a second chance to the defensive tackle the team released in 2017 after he was charged with domestic violence.
Hageman, 28, was a second-round pick from Minnesota in 2014. He 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.
If he makes the roster, Hageman will be suspended for the first two games of the 2019 season for a violation of the substance abuse policy following a recent DWI arrest. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told The Associated Press all teams were informed of the suspension on April 5.
