And then there was one. . . .

The Seahawks’ signings of draft picks Kenneth Walker III (second round) and Coby Bryant (fourth round) has left only one NFL draft selection unsigned. Ravens rookie outside linebacker David Ojabo has not agreed to terms.

The second-round choice did not report to training camp Tuesday.

The league’s other 261 draft selections have signed.

At least three 2022 second-round selections have signed contracts with guaranteed money in the fourth year of their deals. It is unknown whether negotiations over guaranteed money in the final year of hte deal is the reason Ojabo hasn’t signed.

The No. 45 overall choice, is slotted to make some $7.9 million in his rookie contract.

Ojabo is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon at Michigan’s Pro Day in March. But since he hasn’t signed his deal, he will have to rehab away from the team facility.

In 2021, he had 11 sacks and five forced fumbles in 14 games.

  1. What point is there to sign a contract if the signee isn’t going to honor the terms?

  2. Same can be said about the team. Players sign a 5 year contract and can be dumped after year two

  3. You’re getting bad advice from your agent or you’re not making a good decision yourself. You aren’t a top 10 pick. You’re a 2nd rounder who is lucky to have even been taken in the 2nd round bc of your injury. Sign the contract.

  4. Once he signs he’s getting either PUP or IR. I’m guessing that has something to do with it.

  5. Ravens didn’t have enough cap room to sign anyone… but since they restructured Humphrey he should be signed this week

  6. I’ve noticed that the Ravens draft picks have all been very hesitant to sign. It’s apparent they would have preferred to be drafted by a different team. It’s getting pretty ugly in Baltimore.

    The time I’m between where the team gets the most value out of the player?

    A players talent/leverage keeps you up at night?

  8. Fraud, only excelled because of Hutch at UM. He will never recover from that injury, total bust, mark it.

    I’ve noticed you said the same about every team but your Browns….
    Browns fans gonna Brown.

  10. Well, Njabo’s recovering from a torn achilles and very possibly won’t play this entire season anyway so I guess if there’s any player who is really not in a rush to sign a rookie deal, its him.

  11. He technically can hold out the entire year and re-enter the draft next year under the current CBA.

    He would not earn a dime this year however and there’s a chance he could go lower than round 2 next year.

  12. For someone who was lucky enough to be taken in rd 2 and make 7.2 mill sure has alot of nerve to hold out on team who took a big chance..just because you were a 1st rd talent before injury doesn’t mean you would have been taken in the 1st sign the contract kid
