Falcons right guard Chris Lindstrom, the 14th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, signed his four-year contract with the team Thursday, the team announced Thursday afternoon, confirming an earlier AJC report.
The team announced that Lindstrom signed a deal worth $14.6 million, with the team holding an option on the fifth year. Lindstrom is projected to receive a $8.6 million signing bonus.
The Falcons now have all of their 2019 draft picks on board.
The team’s other first-round pick, Kaleb McGary, the 31st overall selection, and fourth-round pick Kendall Sheffield agreed to terms with the team May 9.
McGary is projected to receive a four-year deal, with a fifth-year team option for $10.2 million, with a signing bonus of $5.4 million, according to Spotrac.
Sheffield’s four-year deal is projected to be worth $3.2 million with a $756,000 signing bonus.
McGary played 53 games over four seasons at Washington. He made 47 starts.
Sheffield, who started his career at Alabama but ended at Ohio State, was an honorable-mention all-Big Ten selection.
The Falcons agreed to terms with four draft picks, defensive end John Cominsky (four years, $3 million), running back Qadree Ollison (four, $2.8 million), cornerback Jordan Miller (four, $2.75 million) and running back Marcus Green (four, $2.6 million), on Friday.
Lindstrom landed in Atlanta on May 9 and fully participated in the rookie minicamp.
Under the collective bargaining agreement, rookie deals are slotted with the dollar amounts, and the two sides just work on some of the language in the deal.
