Laquon Treadwell is still waiting to sign a contract with the Vikings

New, comments

The rest of the drafted Rebels have all inked. Here's what their contracts look like.

A week and a half after festivities wrapped up in Chicago, four of the five former Ole Miss players picked up in the NFL Draft have put pen to paper on their rookie contract. The only one still waiting to officially become a millionaire? Laquon Treadwell.

"It will be done soon," Treadwell said told the Pioneer Press after his first minicamp practice. "I got a great agent, and I'm just waiting for the go-ahead.''

That was Friday. Not that there's a particular rush -- Laquon is among 19 first-rounders that haven't signed yet -- but he's the only one of the Vikings' eight draftees still negotiating. Minnesota had all of its picked signed heading into last year's minicamp.

A source gave Chris Tomasson the nondescript explanation that there are "still details to be ironed out." The 2011 collective bargaining agreement took most of the negotiating out of rookie contracts -- each draft slot comes with a dollar amount window that doesn't allow for much wiggling. Treadwell's No. 23 overall spot should get him something in the neighborhood of $9.93 million over four years, according to Spotrac.

Which means that whatever this holdup is, it's probably a formality. Even without a contract in place, Treadwell was out on the practice field making (and snapchatting) one-hand snags over the weekend.

Here are the contract numbers for those Rebels who have signed.
