The Falcons agreed to terms with four members of their draft class on Thursday.

PK-P Matt Bosher, the team's sixth-round pick, could potentially be the team's starting punter and kickoff specialist as a rookie. He was given a four-year contract.

Seventh-rounders Andrew Jackson, an offensive lineman, and DE Cliff Matthews also were signed by the team. Both were given four-year deals.

According to PFW correspondent and Atlanta Journal Constitution writer D. Orlando Ledbetter, the team agreed to terms with third-round LB Akeem Dent out of Georgia.
