Although the Falcons didn't strike big in terms of name value, they struck quick and for two players who were released, they struck hard.

Atlanta opened the free-agent period Friday by signing bruising fourth-year fullback Ovie Mughelli to a six-year, $18 million contract with a $5 million signing bonus, according to Atlanta-based agent, Todd France.

The contract is among the highest ever for an NFL fullback.

So 5M guaranteed money good deal for FB.

These contract number don't mean sh1t they get restructured in later years.

the signing happened ...... but i thought the amount of the contract was new information.

i didn't hear that it was the biggest contract for a fullback in history until today.

doesn't matter when it came out, laz--the fact that someone threw 18 million at a fullback is the sad part

They're the same ones that threw 130 million at a running back though.
