Julio Jones, Jacquizz Rodgers Sign, Completing Atlanta Falcons Draft Haul

Good news comes in bunches some times. Minutes after Adam Schefter broke the news of RT Tyson Clabo's re-signing with the Atlanta FalconsD. Orlando Ledbetter reported the team had signed rookie RB Jacquizz Rodgers. Not to be outdone, Jason La Canfora reported seconds later that Julio Jones had been signed as well, meaning every rookie will be cleared to practice.

Update: Zach Klein adds a little math: $16.2 million guaranteed for four years of Julio Jones.

We don't have financials yet for any of these deals, save Akeem Dent's, which came by way of Aaron Wilson. How great is the new rookie wage scale? All six rookies signed days after the lockout ends.

And check out how many instant contributors you're looking at here. Matt Bosher should take over as the starting punter now that Matt Bryant has been re-signed.
