Remember the days of first round picks not signing their contracts until the week of training camp? I can remember Tyson Jackson, the Kansas City Chiefs first round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, signing his deal right as training camp was getting started. Ditto with Eric Berry, who was the Chiefs first round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Well, those days are long gone. In case you forgot, we now have a rookie wage scale which brings the amount of money spent on those draft picks way down. It also takes out all the drama in first round pick signings.
The Seahawks, for example, have agreed to terms with Bruce Irvin, who is the first 1st round pick to sign a deal.
NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reported that first round pick signings are expected to pick up this week.
When do you think Dontari Poe officially comes into the fold?
