Negotiating contracts in the NFL has traditionally been a long and tedious process, as agents tend to demand what’s in their best interest, while teams may want to pay players slightly less than their market value in order to navigate in the harsh salary of the league. cap.

But that could change, at least for beginners.

NFL insider Field Yates pointed out that only about two weeks after the draft, 110 players chosen in this year’s draft officially signed their rookie contracts on Friday, rather than taking months to complete the process.

The market for viable NFL players has become much more lucrative in the past two years alone, and it has started with some of the league’s big stars.

Last offseason, Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, Russell Wilson, Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams all received huge new contracts, and this spring Lamar Jackson and Daniel Jones cashed in big.

This year’s rookie crop will be very intriguing, and it will start with quarterbacks Bryce Young and CJ Stroud, who were chosen with the first two draft picks.

Also, Anthony Richardson, a dual-threat QB from the University of Florida, is said to have a high cap.

Running back Bijan Robinson, who went to No. 8 from the Atlanta Falcons, is considered a possible superstar in the making.

Fans are also excited to see linebacker Will Anderson Jr. and tight ends Dalton Kincaid and Michael Mayer, who were brought in by the Houston Texans, Buffalo Bills and Las Vegas Raiders respectively.
