Solomon Thomas signs with 49ers

We’re down to two unsigned picks from the 2017 draft.

The 49ers announced on Friday that third overall pick Solomon Thomas has signed his rookie deal with the club. Thomas was drafted after the 49ers made a trade out of the second spot in the first round with the Bears, which changed Thomas’ draft slot but not his destination as he was the player the team wanted all along.

Thomas’ signing comes a day after General Manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan expressed their hope that the start of camp would provide the impetus needed to get the defensive lineman under contract. They did not say what had held things up to this point, but it’s been worked out to everyone’s satisfaction in any case.

With Thomas signed, Titans wide receiver Corey Davis, the fifth overall pick, and Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley, the 24th overall selection, are the only draftees without contracts. PFT reported earlier on Friday that the Raiders and Conley are making progress toward a deal.

    “I thought the rookie salary cap was supposed to end rookie holdouts”

    Not at all. It was to end rookies coming in to the league and never playing a single snap of NFL ball being paid vastly more than some veteran stars in the league.

    Until camp starts, technically no one has held out. That said, why isn’t Davis under contract?!? J-Rob I love ya, but get it done!

    If by sucesss you mean your neon green pukes getting blown out of the playoffs the last two years then yeah.

    Which neon green pukes are you talking about? Did you just assume my team? Should I assume your age and gender? Because I bet I could get pretty close.

    But, if you want to talk about the playoffs, how’d your team do last year?

    Doubt you could count as high as my age and gender is 50/50 so it really says nothing except for how low you set the bar on your intelligence.
