The Steelers signed two of their draft picks to contracts today. Fourth-round pick Doran Grant and sixth-round pick Anthony Chickillo both signed their 4 year rookie deals this morning. The financial details weren’t immediately released, but the NFL’s rookie wage system makes it pretty easy to accurately predict their values.
Grant’s 4 year deal should have a total value of just over $2.763 Mil, including a signing bonus of $489,012. His 2015 cap number will be right around $557,253, but will only move the cap needle $122,253 after displacement.
Chickillo’s 4 year deal should have a total value of approximately $2,370,487. His signing bonus will be $90,487, and his 2015 cap number will be $457,621.
The Steelers now have 3 draft picks under contract. L.T. Walton, another sixth-round pick, signed last week.
