Falcons, CB Trufant agree on deal

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

Robert Alford.
