ATLANTA — First-round draft pick Sean Weatherspoon has reported for training camp after reaching an agreement on a contract with the Atlanta Falcons.

The team confirmed Weatherspoon, a linebacker from Missouri, has agreed to terms on a five-year contract. Terms were not immediately available.

Weatherspoon reported on Thursday for Friday's start of training camp.

This is the third straight year under general manager Thomas Dimitroff the Falcons have had all their draft picks signed before the start of training camp.

Weatherspoon was the No. 19 overall pick in the NFL draft. He is expected to compete for a starting job at outside linebacker.

Weatherspoon's agent, David Dunn, did not immediately return a phone call to The Associated Press.
