Falcons ink Nicholas

The Falcons signed the first of their eleven draft picks in fourth round linebacker Stephen Nicholas. Nicholas agreed to a four-year deal. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Nicholas is expected to compete for playing time early in his career. Starting weakside linebacker Demorrio Williams is expected to miss time due to a torn pectoral muscle, giving Nicholas a chance to replace him early in the season as the starter at that position.
