I love how management gets contract's done before training camp starts. Good work by all of management making sure there were no problems. Now I believe Weatherspoon will be starting this season.

FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons first-round pick Sean Weatherspoon agreed to five year contract on Thursday, the team confirmed.

Weatherspoon, a linebacker from Missouri, is set to sign the deal before the team meeting which is scheduled for 7 p.m. He was the 19th player selected in the 2010 NFL draft.

Most of the Falcons pulled up to the amenities building in their luxury cars to check into the living quarters for training camp earlier in the day.

But Weatherspoon was not one of them because the team and his agent were still hammering out his contract.

With Weatherspoon in the fold, the Falcons have all of their rookies signed and will have all 80 players when they hit field for their first practice Friday morning.

Earlier in the week, Falcons coach Mike Smith said he was optimistic that the Weatherspoon deal would get done before camp opened.

Progress was made during the negotiations on Wednesday and with a big push Thursday morning, Weatherspoon’s deal was completed.
