Falcons reach deal with rookie TE Levine Toilolo

The Falcons have come to terms with with rookie tight end Levine Toilolo, the club said on Tuesday.

A fourth-round selection from Stanford, Toilolo is likely to fill a complementary role in the Atlanta offense as a rookie. He caught 24 passes for 393 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 for the Cardinal.

The return of Tony Gonzalez for 2013 gives the Falcons a proven pass-catching threat at tight end for 2013, but there could be a chance for the 6-foot-8, 260-pound Toilolo to contribute in multi-TE sets right off the bat. Moreover, he gets the chance to learn from a surefire first-ballot Hall of Famer in Gonzalez. Longer term, there is certainly a chance for Toilolo to earn a bigger role, what with Gonzalez nearing the end of his special career.

    Watch out for the Falcons diamond in the rough at TE, Mr. Chase Coffman. The Bungles loss will end up being our gain since he got his feet wet last year. Adam Levine Toilolo welcome to the jungle.
