The Atlanta Falcons and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon have agreed to terms on a five-year contract. The linebacker, a first-round pick out of Missouri, was the No. 19 selection in the April draft. He is expected to sign Thursday night and participate in practice Friday. Financial terms are not available.
Weatherspoon, who spent most of his college career at outside linebacker, is expected to compete with Stephen Nicholas for the starting job on the weak side.
The Falcons have now signed all of their draft picks.
