Falcons Sign 1st Round Pick Desmond Trufant for $8.16 Million

Desmond Trufant

The Atlanta Falcons came to terms with their first round pick, Desmond Trufant, on Wednesday.  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the 22nd overall pick of the 2013 draft signed a deal worth $8.16 million over four years, including a $4.31 million signing bonus.  Trufant will likely compete for starting position, as the Falcons parted ways with three cornerbacks who were on the team last season.

Trufant joins his older brothers, Marcus Trufant (Jacksonville Jaguars) and Isaiah Trufant (New York Jets), as a cornerback in the NFL.
