Rookies to sign soon
D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC reports that the Falcons expect many of their remaining unsigned rookies to sign relatively soon.
Fourth round linebacker Stephen Nicholas was the first to sign last week. Third round receiver Laurent Robinson is one Ledbetter notes is expected to sign soon. GM Rich McKay indicates that more signings should come within the next week. The Falcons have ten unsigned rookies out of their eleven total draft picks. Typically the Falcons in the past have waited until the weeks prior to the open of training camp before signing any of their rookies.
