Well that was fast.
Starting with top pick Trae Waynes around lunchtime, the Vikings signed every member of their 10-player draft class in the span of a few hours before their rookie minicamp, which starts tomorrow.
Waynes, the 11th overall selection last weekend, was the first to sign his four-year rookie deal. His contract will include a fifth-year option for the team, standard for all first-rounders per the CBA.
The nine other draft picks, including UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks and LSU defensive end Danielle Hunter, signed four-year deals.
Terms of the Waynes deal are not yet known, but Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, the 11th overall pick last year, signed a four-year deal worth about $11.5 million with a signing bonus of nearly $6.7 million.
You’re probably pretty familiar with Waynes by now. But if not, check out my feature on the cornerback from a few days ago.
