Rams have 8 of 11 draft picks signed
And then there were three.
The St. Louis Rams got busy over the weekend and in the process they now have eight of their 11 draft picks under contract with a month to go until the start of training camp. That leaves four weeks to hammer out deals for quarterback Sam Bradford, the No. 1 overall pick and Rodger Saffold, the second-round selection expected to compete for the starting job at right tackle. Also remaining unsigned at this point is tight end Fendi Onobun, a sixth-round draft pick from Arizona.
Cornerback Jerome Murphy, a third-round draft pick from South Florida, received a signing bonus of just less than $938,000 in a four-year contract. Wide receiver Mardy Gilyard, a fourth-round pick, got a signing bonus of $552,000. Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui, a fifth-round pick, received a signing bonus of $216,000. Eugene Sims, a defensive end drafted in the sixth round, received a signing bonus of just less than $104,000. Defensive end George Selvie, a seventh-round pick, received a signing bonus of $56,000.
Now, the Rams just have to make certain they get Bradford to camp on time.
