Yay for the rookie wage scale! It may have screwed the incoming rookies for the foreseeable future, but it sure has made this process painless. The days of guys taking all summer and into training camp to sign are pretty much over.

For instance... Mychal Kendricks. The Eagles 2nd round pick agreed to a four year deal today, before the team has even held a minicamp. Kendricks can now put his full focus this summer on winning the starting SAM job.

Amazingly enough, winning a job with the Eagles would settle a bit of family business for Kendricks. From the Eagles release.

Kendricks, a Fresno, CA native, starred at Hoover High School as both a linebacker and running back. He led the team with 175 tackles and four sacks as a senior, while also compiling 1,035 all purpose yards and six touchdowns. His father, Marvin Kendricks, was in training camp as a running back with the Eagles in 1976 after playing in the CFL and WFL following his graduation from UCLA in 1972.

The rest of the picks likely won't be far behind.
