Falcons Hopeful of Deal With Sean Weatherspoon

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff is hopeful that the team will have first-round linebacker Sean Weatherspoon signed in time for training camp, reports D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"I’m very confident that we are going to have things done and that he’ll ready to go at the beginning of camp," Dimitroff said. "When I talked to David Dunn and his representatives yesterday, we were very clear that we want to have him here day one.

"We’ve been fortunate...I think we have a nice streak of having our players ready, getting them signed in time and I think Sean will be signed in time."

The Falcons report to training camp on Thursday, and hit the field for the first on Friday.

Weatherspoon, the Falcons' lone unsigned draft pick, is expected to compete for the team's starting strong-side linebacker job this summer.
