Report: Dri Archer Signs Rookie Contract

The Steelers have signed their 3rd round pick Dri Archer today, according to ESPN reporter Field Yates. The team has not made an official announcement yet.

With the signing of the speedy running back, the team only has one draft pick who remains unsigned, and I imagine Stephon Tuitt will be doing so in the near future. Here is a look at the salary cap numbers I’ve projected for Archer.

Player Total Value Signing Bonus 2014 Cap Hit
Dri Archer $2,906,784 $506,376 $546,594


As you can see, Archer’s 2014 salary cap impact is minimal. After displacement of the top 51, he should only move the 2014 Steelers salary cap needle by $51,594 (give or take) by my estimation. I’ll update when the specific numbers are available.
