Bronson Kaufusi Signs, Entire Rookie Class Now Under Contract


The Ravens have now inked their entire rookie draft class.

Third-round defensive end Bronson Kaufusi signed his rookie contact Tuesday, the first day of Ravens minicamp.

It may have taken Kaufusi longer to sign because third-round picks have more wiggle room to negotiate than players in other rounds.

While the signing bonuses for drafted players are slotted, base salaries can be negotiated. Picks from the top two rounds get the maximum base salaries, and picks from Rounds 4-7 get the minimum. Third-rounders don't have a set number.

Although he signed at the start of minicamp, the 6-foot-6 BYU product won't be on the field. Kaufusi is still recovering from a back injury suffered during his first NFL practice at rookie minicamp and will be out until training camp, per Head Coach John Harbaugh.

"He wrenched his back, for lack of a better term," Harbaugh said last week. "He will definitely be back for training camp. He will be training hard here between now and then."
