Falcons, CB Desmond Trufant agree on contract

By GEORGE HENRY

ATLANTA (AP) - The Falcons and Desmond Trufant have agreed to multi-year deal and the rookie cornerback will report to training camp on time.

Atlanta announced the deal Wednesday but did not release terms of the contract. However, a person familiar with the situation says it's a 4-year, $8.16 million contract - of which $4.3 million is guaranteed. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the terms had not been announced.

Players are required to report to dorms by 5 p.m. Wednesday at the team's training facility in Flowery Branch, Ga.

Atlanta traded up eight spots in a deal with St. Louis to draft Trufant out of Washington. He is the leading candidate to start at right cornerback, but will have to beat out second-round pick Robert Alford.
