Trufant Signed

Done deal... ... reach-deal

The Atlanta Falcons signed first-round pick Desmond Trufant, the team announced Thursday.

The cornerback's signing brings all of the team's 2013 draft picks under contract.

Terms weren't disclosed by the team, but under the collective bargaining agreement, rookies receive four-year contracts and clubs are allowed to include a fifth-year team option for first-round selections.

Trufant is expected to start opposite Asante Samuel for the Falcons, who lost cornerback Brent Grimes to the Miami Dolphins in free agency.

The Falcons, who began the draft with the 30th overall pick, jumped up to No. 22 to get Trufant.

Atlanta begins training camp Thursday.
