Houston, Irons, and Lewis sign

Steve Wyche of the AJC reports that the Falcons have come to terms with three of the five remaining rookies. Most notable among them is second round pick Chris Houston, along with sixth rounders David Irons and Trey Lewis.

Houston agreed to a five-year contract, while both Irons and Lewis signed four-year deals. Houston is expected to compete for a starting position with Lewis Sanders opposite DeAngelo Hall. Irons and Lewis will both be competing for reserve roles at cornerback and defensive tackle, respectively.

Their signings along with the inking of top pick Jamaal Anderson means that only second round pick Justin Blalock remains as the only unsigned rookie among the Falcons eleven player draft class.

Wyche reports that Blalock is expected to be signed before the team takes the practice field at 3:00 pm Thursday.
