ATLANTA (AP) -The Atlanta Falcons are still negotiating with two draft picks after signing linebacker Robert James to a four-year contract.
James, a fifth-round pick, on Tuesday became the ninth of the team's 11 draft picks to sign. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The team has not reached agreements with offensive tackle Sam Baker, a first-round pick, and linebacker Curtis Lofton.
The 5-foot-11, 218-pound James had 174 tackles in four seasons at Arizona State. He was chosen the team's most valuable defensive player after setting a career high with 108 as a senior.
The Falcons have less than two weeks to reach agreements with Baker and Lofton before training camp opens July 26.
