Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon has a chance to be the next “Mouth of the South,” an excitable first-round Falcons pick that can back up his talk more than DeAngelo Hall ever did.
Weatherspoon made sure he’ll get to training camp on Thursday when he agreed to terms on a five-year deal, as originally reported by Jay Glazer of FOX. The Falcons quickly confirmed the news once it was out.
It’s uncertain if Weatherspoon will start as a rookie. Mike Peterson looks like the man at Weatherspoon’s natural weak side position, so Weatherspoon could possibly challenge Stephen Nicolas on the strong side.
