The Falcons have signed Drake London, the organization announced on Thursday afternoon. London was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
London's rookie deal is estimated to have a total value of $24.66 million, according to OverTheCap.com. The rookie receiver will carry a 2022 cap hit of $4.48 million. That cap hit will rise by about one million dollars over the course of the next four years. WSB-TV's Zach Klein reported the total value of the deal was "a little over $21.5 million."
It is the expectation that without Calvin Ridley or Russell Gage, London will be WR1 in Atlanta. He joins a receiver room that includes Auden Tate, Olamide Zaccheaus, KhaDarel Hodge and Frank Darby. More so, London joins an offense with other receiving weapons like Kyle Pitts and Cordarrelle Patterson.
