Patriots Rookie Contracts: James White Signs Four-Year, $2.6M Deal

The NFL’s collective bargaining agreement has made signing rookie contracts into a formality rather than a struggle. Every player drafted in the first round signs a four-year contract with a fifth-year option, and every player drafted in Rounds 2 through 7 signs a four-year deal.
