As rookies made their way to the Los Angeles Rams team facility for COVID-19 testing, the team had them do something else in addition to that. Signing their rookie contracts to officially become NFL players.
The Rams yesterday signed every single draft pick from the 2020 NFL Draft class to rookie deals. While all of them will receive a four-year contract, it is worth mentioning that the Rams, not having a first-round pick have no players eligible for a fifth-year option.
So far so good. No opt-outs and the rookies appear to be ready to get after it this NFL season.
