2024 NFL Draft first-round rookie contract tracker: Jets’ Olu Fashanu, Giants’

SATISFACTION

With the 2024 NFL Draft in the rearview mirror and rookie minicamps underway, it’s time for the newest members of the NFL family to get paid. All 257 draft picks and their agents now turn their attention to their respective front offices and prepare to sign their first NFL contracts.

Thanks to the CBA, rookie contracts are more tied to the player’s slotted draft position, and there isn’t too much to be negotiated. But, there are still talks that need to take place before pen is put to paper. Each contract comes with a fully-guaranteed fifth-year team option, and the value of that fifth-year option will vary based on position, playing time and Pro Bowl selections.

Former Clemson cornerback and newest Raven Nate Wiggins was the first first-rounder to sign his rookie deal, but plenty have followed. Below, we will break down the details of every first-round pick’s rookie deal once they are reported.
