We’ve already examined what the rookie contract will look like for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree after he was drafted Thursday night in the first-round of the 2015 NFL Draft and now that two more players were added Friday night, we will look ahead at the four-year deals they both will be signing.
As for cornerback Senquez Golson, who was drafted in the second-round Friday night, his rookie contract should total out at around $3.791 million and include a signing bonus of roughly $1.017 million. His 2015 salary cap charge should come in at just over $689,000 once the contract is signed, sealed and delivered to the NFLPA.
As for wide receiver Sammie Coates, who was drafted Friday night in the third-round, his rookie contract should total out at just over $2.8 million and include a signing bonus just north of $549,000. His 2015 cap charge based on those estimates will be a little more than $572,200.
Both Golson and Coates are unlikely to be signed until sometime in June and as soon as their deals are made official, I will pass along the final numbers to you along with the cap charges for all four years of the contract.
