This has been a done deal the entire time. Something that was going to happen no matter what. Inevitable. Predestined. Certain. Assured. Now that rookie players don’t break the bank and bust the cap space of their teams immediately, now that rookie contracts are slotted based on where players are selected, everyone who is drafted signs with their prospective team.
Right before rookie minincamp begins, Tytus Howard, Max Scharping, Ronnie Johnson, Cullen Gillaspia, Xavier Crawford, and Charles Omenihu signed their contracts with the Houston Texans, which is just a long way of saying the team signed their entire drafted rookie class, except for Kahale Warring, who should sign any minute now.

If you have any desire to know how much these players will make, this really long and insanely formatted tweet from John McClain should satiate those burning feelings.
