FLOWERY BRANCH, GA - A person with knowledge of the contract says the Atlanta Falcons agreed to terms with linebacker Stephen Nicholas on Wednesday.

The person spoke anonymously to The Associated Press because the
team has not announced the deal. Free agents can sign on Friday.

The contract is for five years and is worth $17.5 million
overall.

Nicholas, a four-year veteran, made 25 starts over the past two
seasons and will compete with veteran Coy Wire and rookie Akeem
Dent for a starting job.

The Falcons still have several unrestricted free agents who
helped them win the NFC South last year: starting offensive linemen
Tyson Clabo, Harvey Dahl and Justin Blalock; linebacker Mike
Peterson; kicker Matt Bryant; punter Michael Koenen; and cornerback
Brian Williams.
