Tyson Alualu and Jerry Hughes Sign First-Round Deals: Jermaine Gresham Now One Of Four Unsigned First Round Picks

As we get reports that the Bengals could get tight end Jermaine Gresham into camp relatively soon, the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars signed their respective first round picks Monday morning. The Jacksonville Jaguars signed the 10th overall selection in Tyson Alualu to a five-year deal worth $28 million and $17.5 million guaranteed. Jerry Hughes signed with the Colts and will reportedly make the team's afternoon practice.

This leaves four first round draft picks unsigned. Along with Jermaine Gresham, the Lions were at one point dealing with an extraordinary demand from defensive tackle that Ndamukong Suh receive more guaranteed money than Sam Bradford -- not only is Bradford awarded the quarterback premium, he's the first overall draft pick. Suh's representative Eugene Parker admitted that demand was a bit, you know, dumb.

I would say that this is one of the reasons you never want a draft pick inside the top-five of the NFL draft. Not only do they demand ridiculous amounts of money, but it's rare that they sign a contract and arrive in camp on time. I would have said that, if Gresham's holdout wasn't going into the fifth day.

The Bills have yet to sign running back C.J. Spiller and the Seahawks are hoping to get offensive tackle Russell Okung in camp soon.
