FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons have signed cornerback Robert Alford, a second-round pick from Southeastern Louisiana. Alford was the second of two cornerbacks selected by the Falcons in the draft. First-round pick Desmond Trufant remains unsigned. Alford had 10 interceptions and started 31 games at Southeastern Louisiana. He also returned punts and kickoffs in 2012, taking advantage of his 4.39 speed in the 40-yard dash. He impressed the Falcons with his performance against major college players in the Senior Bowl. The only other remaining unsigned pick from the Falcons draft is quarterback Sean Renfree, a seventh-round selection from Duke. Marcell Dareus Gear .

"It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont.DETROIT -- Justin Verlanders no-hit bid was finally over in the seventh inning -- and before refocusing, the Detroit ace saw his shortstop do something amusing. "When the double was hit, and the ball came back in, everybody started cheering," Verlander said. "(Jhonny) Peralta caught the ball and looked up at the board checking the hits. Thats when I knew he didnt know. I was like, Come on, Jhonny." Verlander fell seven outs short of his third career no-hitter, but the Detroit ace looked sharp in his final start before the All-Star break, and the Tigers backed him with three home runs in a 5-0 victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Mitch Morelands two-out double to right-centre broke up Verlanders bid. Verlander (10-6) left the game after the seventh with a tight right quad muscle, having allowed just that one hit and three walks. "It was just kind of starting to get tight," Verlander said. "Theres really no need to push it." Torii Hunter, Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta hit solo homers off Texas starter Martin Perez (3-2). The Rangers finished with two hits. Verlander was picked for the American League All-Star team but was replaced for Tuesday nights event. Under baseballs labour contract, pitchers who start on the Sunday before the All-Star game may opt not to participate. Although he also took a no-hitter into the seventh at Houston on May 5, Verlanders overpowering aura hasnt been quite the same this season. Sundays gem lowered his ERA to 3.50. He struck out only three but was effective anyway. "It was a little bit different Verlander than what we usually see," Moreland said. "He mixed a lot of off-speed in there and kept us off-balance. I felt like we hit some balls hard, but it seemed like they went right to them. Youve got to tip your hat to what he did, its always a battle going against him and hes where hes at for a reason. It was a tough one for us." Verlander no-hit Toronto on May 7, 2011. His other no-hitter came June 12, 2007, against Milwaukee. Nolan Ryan, Sandy Koufax, Bob Feller and Cy Young are among the five pitchers with at least three no-hitters. Larry Corcoran, an ambidextrous pitcher who won 177 games from 1880-85, is the other one. Verlander took the mound about 12 hours after San Franciscos Tim Lincecuum finished a no-hitter of his own at San Diego.dddddddddddd The drama began building in Detroit in the fourth when Tigers left fielder Matt Tuiasosopo got turned around on a line drive by Nelson Cruz. He was able to recover and reach up for the catch. In the fifth, Hunter ran to the corner in right to catch a flyball by Elvis Andrus. Jurickson Profar, the next hitter, sent a smash toward Martinez, who was playing first base because Prince Fielder was Detroits designated hitter Sunday. Martinez made the stop and took the ball to first himself for the third out of the inning. Hunter went deep in the first to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead, and Martinez and Peralta hit back-to-back homers in the fourth. Detroit added two runs in the sixth on RBI singles by Peralta and Tuiasosopo, although that rally made Verlander wait a while before taking the mound again. The following inning was when Moreland connected for the first Texas hit. Neither Hunter nor centre fielder Austin Jackson had much of a shot at Morelands drive. "Obviously, its one of those things you start to think about," Verlander said. "Ive been there before, where Ive lost them in the sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth. So I guess Ive -- not become accustomed to it -- but you learn to just refocus and just get the next guy. Thats all I can do." This was much better than Verlanders outing at Texas on May 16, when he allowed eight runs and didnt get out of the third inning. Verlander has been overshadowed a bit this year by fellow Detroit right-hander Max Scherzer, who is a strong candidate to start Tuesday nights All-Star game at Citi Field in New York. But Verlander showed Sunday why he, too, is an All-Star. "I think hes been a very good major league pitcher that has expectations that are almost impossible to live up to," Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. Verlander received a nice ovation from the home crowd after the first Texas hit, and another one when he came back to the dugout after retiring his final batter. NOTES: Perez allowed five runs and four hits in 5 2-3 innings. He struck out four and walked three. ... Leyland said Anibal Sanchez will start Friday at Kansas City in the first game after the All-Star break, followed by Verlander, Doug Fister, Scherzer and Rick Porcello.
