Twitter reacts to Falcons signing free agent Jessie Bates III

The Atlanta Falcons have landed two big fish on the unofficial first day of free agency. After signing former Saints defensive lineman David Onyemata a three-year, $35 million contract, the team has reportedly agreed to terms on a four-year, $64 million deal with safety Jessie Bates III.

Bates III is a player that Falcons fans have been lobbying for since the start of the offseason. Once the news broke Monday afternoon, many fans took to Twitter to celebrate.
