Derek Wolfe

Yesterday, we mentioned that the Denver Broncos have yet to sign any of the seven members of their 2012 draft class. Today, the Denver Post tells us that that will soon change.

The Broncos are “near deals” with top picks Derek Wolfe and Brock Osweiler, which will be within $15,000 of the contracts signed by players drafted in their respective slots a year ago. According to the report, Wolfe can expect a four-year, $7.6 million deal, and Osweiler is looking at a four-year contract worth a hair over $3 million.

There’s no reason the entire draft class won’t be signed before training camp, a stark change to NFL offseasons of old.

    The Rookie salary cap is one of the best things to happen to the NFL in years. I’ve always thought they should give the money to the guys that have proven them selfs first rather the the FNG that hasn’t done anything yet. The only thing I think there should be is injury clauses. If a guy goes out and has a career ending injury he should still get paid a percentage├é┬árather than simply being released.
