Patriots Have Already Signed Two of Their Draft Picks

New, comments

With the rookie wage scale, signing contracts is easier than ever.

The ink from the draft hasn't even dried and the Patriots have already signed two draft picks, per the Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

The Collective Bargaining Agreement puts the rookies on a wage scale, which means that each draft pick already knows how much they're going to earn purely based on their draft pick.

Thuney's deal includes a nice chunk of guaranteed money and he should be considered a roster lock, while KGH is on the opposite end of the spectrum- consider him a camp body, and any production from him is gravy.

I'm sure we'll be hearing about more signings- and possibly all of them- over the next couple of days.
