The path to signing draft picks got much easier a decade ago once rookie contracts were slotted.
So the Cardinals closing in on signing all of their draft picks — after doing so with second-round tight end Trey McBride and seventh-rounders Christian Matthew, a cornerback, and Marquis Hayes, an offensive lineman — on Tuesday comes as expected.
The Cardinals last week signed running back Keaontay Ingram, offensive lineman Lecitus Smith and linebacker Jesse Luketa. The only two draftees yet unsigned are third-round picks Cameron Thomas and Myjai Sanders.
All rookies signed four-year contracts.
The rookies are at the Dignity Health Training Center for good now, merging this week with veterans with the voluntary Phase Two workouts. Organized Team Activities begin Monday.
