Sean Weatherspoon, Falcons agree to 5-year deal

Posted on: July 29, 2010 5:19 pm
Sean Weatherspoon is the latest first-round domino to fall, agreeing a five-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday.

Financials of the deal haven't been disclosed, but the AJC 's D. Orlando Ledbetter says a "big push" on Thursday really helped move the negotiations to a close.

“There hasn’t really been a lot of action throughout the first and second rounds,” [HC Mike] Smith said. “But of course, the closer that you get to the reporting date, you’ll start to see more and more guys sign.”

The Falcons now have their entire draft class inked.

Worth noting as well from Ledbetter's piece: Smith and Thomas Dimitroff have done an excellent job of getting their early-rounders into camp on time, with Sam Baker in 2008 being the only first-rounder not in training camp on time ... and he was only an hour or so late.
