The Philadelphia Eagles signed seven of their eight picks from the 2017 NFL Draft, according to an official announcement from the team. Here’s a full list of the players who signed standard four-year rookie contracts.
CB Sidney Jones
CB Rasul Douglas
WR Mack Hollins
RB Donnel Pumphrey
WR Shelton Gibson
LB Nathan Gerry
DT Elijah Qualls
This leaves Eagles first round selection Derek Barnett as the only draft pick without a deal so far.
There’s no need to worry, though, because it should only be a matter of time before Barnett signs. Draft pick signings used to be a bigger issue before the current CBA. Now it’s pretty standard and really more of a formality than anything.
All of the Eagles’ picks, Barnett included, will be in Philadelphia this weekend for the team’s rookie minicamp. The Eagles’ undrafted free agent signings (which still haven’t been officially revealed yet) will also be in attendance, as will a group of tryout players.
Good to see the Eagles got a bunch of paperwork out of the way.
