The Falcons and Desmond Trufant have agreed to multi-year deal
and the rookie cornerback will report to training camp on time.
Atlanta announced the deal Wednesday but did not release terms
of the contract. However, a person familiar with the situation says
it’s a four-year, $8.16 million contract – of which $4.3 million is
guaranteed. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition
of anonymity because the terms had not been announced.
Players are required to report to dorms by 5 p.m. Wednesday at
the team’s training facility in Flowery Branch, Ga.
Atlanta traded up eight spots in a deal with St. Louis to draft
Trufant out of Washington. He is the leading candidate to start at
right cornerback, but will have to beat out second-round pick
