Snelling signs 4-yr. deal

The D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC reports that the team has agreed to a four-year deal with seventh round running back Jason Snelling. Snelling is the second of eleven Falcon draft picks to sign. Terms of his contract were not reported.

Snelling is expected to split time potentially at both running back and fullback. He played both positions while at Virginia, although spent his senior season at the former position where he rushed for a career high 772 yards and averaged 4.2 yards per carry.

This may be the first of a few more draft pick signings, as the AJC reported earlier this week that two or three more draft picks may sign contracts by this weekend.
