Falcons Sign 20 UDFAs

The Falcons became the latest team to announce their 2021 UDFA class on Monday, and it’s a big one. Atlanta inked the following 20 rookies to contracts:

We already had full write-ups on the Franks and Hawkins signings, which you can read here and here. Hawkins’ deal came with $35K in guaranteed money, a $5K signing bonus and $30K salary guarantee, veteran NFL reporter Aaron Wilson tweets.

Meanwhile Thompson, the linebacker from Mississippi State, got $23K guaranteed, Wilson tweets. The Falcons signed three players from Mississippi State, so clearly they liked the program. The signings are pretty spread around, not concentrated on any one position.
