With the bulk of this year’s draft picks already under contract, there’s not much in the way of news when it comes to rattling off the various guys who have signed off on their rookie deals.
So here’s a bit of a curve ball. Amid reports that the Panthers have inked third-round offensive lineman Trai Turner, a source with knowledge of the situation says it hasn’t happened yet.
While there’s no reason to think Turner eventually would be a training-camp holdout, the source said a deal between the Panthers and Turner isn’t even close.
And that’s as juicy as it gets when it comes to signing rookies under the new labor deal.
