According to an announcement made by the team on Thursday, the Atlanta Falcons have given running back Tyler Allgeier a rookie contract. On Thursday, first-year players selected in the 2022 NFL Draft class reported to Flowery Branch to participate in the rookie minicamp, which will get underway on Friday.

According to the information provided by, the entire value of Allgeier’s contract is estimated to be $4.05 million. Allgeier has the potential to earn a base salary of $705,000 in 2022 and will have a cap hit of $803,268 that year.

Until the conclusion of the deal in 2025, those figures were expected to rise on an annual basis. When it comes to rookie contracts, there is typically not a lot of wiggle space for discussions, however, it is important to realize that this is simply an assumption.

A couple of weeks ago, Atlanta used the 151st overall pick in the draft to choose Allgeier. The Falcons parted ways with veteran running back Mike Davis just a few days after the draft. Now, Allgeier will be competing for playing time in the running back room among players like Cordarrelle Patterson, Qadree Ollison, and Damien Williams.

Allgeier has finished the previous two seasons with more than one thousand yards rushing in each of them. During those two seasons, the running back secured a spot in the top five of the all-time rankings for the school in a number of categories, including total rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. Allgeier is a crucial runner who makes it possible for the blocking scheme to be executed in front of him.
