Falcons agree to terms with No. 6 overall pick OL Jake Matthews
The Falcons agreed to terms with first round pick Jake Matthews and second round pick Ra'Shede Hageman on Wednesday.
Johnny Manziel might have been the most famous Texas A&M player to be drafted in the first round this year, but he wasn't the first, that honor belonged to offensive lineman Jake Matthews.
The fully guaranteed contract will pay Matthews about $16.43 million over the first four years and include a $10.3 million signing bonus.
When the Falcons selected Matthews on May 8, he became the fourth member of his extended family to be taken in the first round. Bruce Matthews (Dad) was taken by the Oilers with the ninth overall pick in 1983. Clay Matthews Jr. (Uncle) was taken by the Browns with the 12th overall pick in 1978. And then there's Clay Matthews III (Cousin), who was taken by the Packers with the 26th overall pick in 2009.
The Falcons also agreed to terms with second-round pick Ra'Shede Hageman. Hageman was one of seven defensive players that the Falcons took in the 2014 NFL Draft. An Atlanta draft that was graded a B+ by CBSSports senior writer Pete Prisco.
