Yesterday former LSU Tiger’s Patrick Queen, and Justin Jefferson both agreed on their rookie deals. Now two more top selections in last year’s NFL Draft have come to terms on their rookie deals too.
Earlier this morning I awoke to the news that Chase Young and Washington had agreed to terms on a rookie deal. Young was the No. 2 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and is one of the best edge prospects to enter the NFL in the last decade.
The deal shows Washington agrees with that. The rookie deal is worth $34.6 million over the next four years, and is fully guaranteed, along with a $22.7 million signing bonus. He is currently the highest member of the 2020 NFL Draft Class to sign their contract.
But the signings didn’t stop with Young. Their NFC East rivals down in Texas would also come to terms with their 1st round selection CeeDee Lamb.
A few hours later NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted out that the No. 17 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft had come to terms with the Dallas Cowboys on a 4 year deal, with a fifth year option. This deal is worth just over $14 million ($14.01) and has a $7.75 million signing bonus.
As the NFL and the NFLPA come to an agreement on how to properly handle this season, it looks more and more promising that we will have football in 2020. With that being said, training camp is right around the corner now and these rookies can finally get in on that.
