With the 2015 NFL Draft now complete, we can take one last look at the four-year rookie contracts that the Pittsburgh Steelers final three selections will sign in the near future in addition to what the first year cap charges should look like for each.
For defensive end Leterrius Walton, who was the Steelers first of two second-round draft picks on Saturday, his four-year contract should total at nearly $2.382 million including a signing bonus of roughly $101,600. His 2015 cap charge should be in the neighborhood of $460,400.
Linebacker Anthony Chickillo was the Steelers second selection in the sixth-round and his four-year contract should total out at around $2.358 million and include a signing bonus close to $73,700. His 2015 salary cap charge will come in at just over 454,600 based on rookie pool estimates.
As for safety Gerod Holliman, the Steelers seventh-round selection, his four-year contract should total out at almost $2.34 million and include a signing bonus close to $51,000. Holliman’s 2015 cap charge should wind up being around $448,000.
All three of these players will likely be signing very soon as their cap charges will not move the team’s total number much at all. As soon as each player does sign and the contract has been filed with the NFLPA, I will pass along the official numbers to you.
