ATLANTA — The Atlanta Falcons are still negotiating with two draft picks after signing linebacker Robert James to a four-year contract.

James, a fifth-round pick, on Tuesday became the ninth of the team's 11 draft picks to sign. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The team has not reached agreements with offensive tackle Sam Baker, a first-round pick, and linebacker Curtis Lofton.

The 5-foot-11, 218-pound James posted 174 tackles in four seasons at Arizona State. He was named the team's most valuable defensive player after setting a career high with 108 stops as a senior.

The Falcons have less than two weeks to reach agreements with Baker and Lofton before training camp opens on July 26.
