The Atlanta Falcons signed first-round draft pick Kyle Pitts to a four-year rookie contract on Tuesday.

Pitts will receive a $32.9 million deal with a signing bonus of approximately $21 million, per the NFL Network. The Falcons will also have a fifth-year option on the former Florida tight end, selected with the fourth overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft.
