All of the Detroit Lions’ draft picks are signed and ready to go, with first-round draft pick Nick Fairley revealing late Thursday night that his deal is done.
“Thank GOD, Family and Fans! I’m officially a Lion! Time to get to work!” Fairley wrote on Twitter.
Fairley got the deal that the new CBA mandates: A four-year contract worth $10 million, a $5.7-million bonus and a fifth-year team option.
Lions second-round picks Titus Young and Mikel Leshoure, fifth-round pick Doug Hogue and seventh-round pick Johnny Culbreath also signed, and all five rookies are expected to practice today.
