Seahawks' second-round pick Jarran Reed agreed to terms on his contract on the eve of the team's rookie mini-camp.
Seahawks’ second-round pick Jarran Reed has agreed to terms on his rookie contract, according to his agency.
Rookie contracts are sort of a formality these days as the years and dollar figures are slotted via the league’s collective bargaining agreement
As explained here, there are some minor things that can be negotiated such as “salary splits, offsets, guarantee language, workout bonuses, and timing of payments.” And teams sometimes need to shuffle things around cap-wise to fit in all the rookie deals.
But the big stuff is already decided via the CBA.
