The pace of rookie signings has been fast this offseason, and the final push is getting underway this morning.

The Lions reached a contract agreement with first-round pick Riley Reiff, according to Tim Twentyman of the Lions’ official website. He’ll report to camp with the rest of their rookies today.

According to the slotted salary system, Reiff will get a four-year deal worth $7.993 million.

Going into the final days of offseason (for which the Lions should be grateful), there are now just 24 unsigned draft picks, including nine more first rounders.

    Finally some good news for a change. Hopefully we can run the ball a little bit to keep the opposing defenses honest.

    Picking an offensive lineman from Iowa will almost always work out for your team. The one major exception is Robert Gallery.

    Good news! Now, it looks like the only downside of the (we interrupt your reading with news of another Lions arrest [Berry] and subsequent release) ‘eh, offseason so far would be not signing Avril to a long term deal. Hopefully that’ll get done next offseason.
