ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons have signed defensive end
Kroy Biermann, their fifth-round pick this year, to a four-year
deal. Terms were not released. Biermann (6-3, 241) had 32 career sacks and 220 tackles in 52 games at Montana. He was named the 2007 Big Sky Conference defensive MVP after recording 70 tackles and 15 sacks as a senior.
Biermann is the eighth of the team's 11 draft picks to sign
contracts. The team has not reached agreements with offensive tackle Sam Baker, linebacker Curtis Lofton and linebacker Robert James.
Baker was the team's second first-round pick, following
quarterback Matt Ryan, the No. 3 overall draft pick who was the
first to sign with the team.
