Falcons sign Julio and Quizz

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC reports that the Falcons have signed both of their remaining draft picks, inking deals with first round wide receiver Julio Jones and fifth round running back Jacquizz Rodgers. The Falcons came to terms with their other four draft picks earlier today. Although terms of their deals have yet to be disclosed, both players signed four-year deals. Because Jones is a first round pick, the team has an option to add a fifth year in 2015, which will be equal to the average of the top ten salaries for wide receivers. That figure was $8.65 million based of 2010 salaries.

UPDATE: Zach Klein of WSB-TV reports that Jones signed a four-year deal worth $16.2 million, all of which is guaranteed.
