The new reality of the ease of negotiating rookie contracts is evidenced by the pace they’re coming in.
Specifically, when a team feels like knocking a bunch out at once, they get done.
Only first-rounder Datone Jones and second-rounder Eddie Lacy lack contracts at the moment.
If you’re a completist, that means fourth rounders David Bakhtiari, J.C. Tretter and Johnathan Franklin, fifth-rounders Micah Hyde and Josh Boyd, sixth-rounder Nate Palmer and seventh-rounders Charles Johnson, Kevin Dorsey and Sam Barrington are under contract.
They also announced the signings of nine undrafted rookies: Illinois State quarterback Matt Brown, Texas A&M center Patrick Lewis, Eastern Michigan linebacker Andy Mulumba, Kansas State running back Angelo Pease, Ole Miss defensive tackle Gilbert Pena, Texas fullback Ryan Roberson, Ohio State tight end Jake Stoneburner, Oklahoma State guard Lane Taylor and Louisiana Tech wide receiver Myles White.
