Atlanta Falcons Ink Three 2011 Draft Picks; Julio Jones Yet To Sign

The Atlanta Falcons announced they've signed their first three rookies from the 2011 crop. Miami Hurricanes kicker Matt Bosher, Fresno St. Bulldogs OL Andrew Jackson and DE Cliff Matthews are in the boat with four-year deals and will be able to partake in Day 1 of on-field training camp action at Flowery Branch on Friday.

Still remaining are Georgia Bulldogs LB Akeem Dent, Oregon St. Beavers RB Jacquizz Rodgers and the big dog Julio Jones of the Alabama Crimson Tide. The team hasn't been able to announce much in free agency so far, with Tyson Clabo negotiations presumably holding things up, so it's good to see the wheels are still turning. In case you'd thought they were taking the week off. I don't think anybody thought that.

No financial terms have been revealed yet, but here's where we stand:


Name Pos. Round - Pick Deal (Four Years Each)


Julio Jones WR 1 - 6 Signed


Akeem Dent LB 3 - 91 Signed, $2.76M


Jacquizz Rodgers RB 5 - 145 Signed


Matt Bosher K 6 - 192 Signed


Andrew Jackson OL 7 - 210 Signed


Cliff Matthews DE 7 - 230 Signed
