FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons have signed
rookie offensive lineman Peter Konz and three other draft picks to multiyear contracts. Terms of the deals were not announced by the team. Atlanta finished a three-day rookie minicamp on Sunday. Konz, selected in the second round out of Wisconsin, will compete for the right guard job. Atlanta signed fullback Bradie Ewing, a fifth-round pick from Wisconsin, safety Charles Mitchell, a sixth-round pick from Mississippi State and former South Carolina defensive tackle Travian Robertson. Ewing will battle Mike Cox for the starting job at fullback. The Falcons released Ovie Mughelli, the starter since 2007, in a move
last week to create salary cap room. Atlanta still must sign offensive tackle Lamar Holmes, a third-round pick, and defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi, a fifth-rounder.
