Report: Falcons Sign Rookie Safety Shann Schillinger

On the heels of their signing of defensive tackle Corey Peters, the Falcons have signed another young defender.

I've already left Schillinger off my roster guess, but I do like him. The Falcons see a productive college safety with a willingness to tackle and an eye for the ball that makes up for anything he might lack in athleticism. I see a guy who would probably benefit from a year on the practice squad, considering that Matt Giordano is perfectly capable of filling the backup/special teams niche while Shazz Schillinger catches up to speed.

Long-term, I think he tops out as a competent backup for William Moore. For a seventh-round pick, though, that would actually be pretty darn good. I'll update this post with contract terms as soon as they become available.
