With drafted rookie contracts becoming increasingly boilerplate, the pace of signing them continues to speed up.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Dolphins fifth-rounder Isaac Asiata signed his four-year deal Thursday night, making him the first of the team’s picks to sign. He’ll make around $2.6 million on the deal.
The guard from Utah was chosen 164th overall. He’s the cousin of Vikings running back Matt Asiata.
He has a chance to compete for playing time in Miami soon, since the team is relatively thin at his position and he’s known as a good run blocker.
