Sean Weatherspoon Fighting for a Starting OLB Spot

First-round pick Sean Weatherspoon is going at it for a starting spot at one of the OLB spots with Stephen Nicholas and Mike Peterson:

Falcons head coach Mike Smith has declared that first-round pick Sean Weatherspoon is in a battle for one of the starting outside linebacker spots. The team will pick between Weatherspoon and veterans Stephen Nicholas and Mike Peterson. “There are three guys competing for the two spots at our outside linebacker positions,” Smith said. “Stephen continues to get better. Stephen really has value for us in that he’s a very physical football player when you put him in the box.” If Nicholas doesn’t win the spot, he will still be a key cog on special teams. “He’s done that since he’s been here,” Smith said.
