The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Wednesday that they signed sixth-round pick, running back Dan "Boom" Herron. Since we love the art of conjecturing rookie contracts, we forecasted that Herron's four-year deal will be worth something in the neighborhood of $2.201 million with more than a $102,000 signing bonus. We were close.

According to NFL Insider Aaron Wilson, Herron's four-year deal is worth $2.203 million, which includes a $103,152 signing bonus. Herron, selected No. 191 overall, signed a deal slightly higher than Charles Mitchell, who was selected at No. 192, signing a four-year deal worth $2.201 million with a $101,672 signing bonus.

What's interesting is that based on available reports, Herron received a higher overall contract than fifth-round safety George Iloka, who reportedly signed a deal worth $2.1 million, less than Herron's deal. However this evolves from a technicality based on reporting. Herron's reported $2.201 includes the signing bonus whereas Iloka's contract doesn't. If we add the signing bonus, then Iloka's deal is worth $2.26 million, less than Marvin Jones' deal and more than Herron. In other words it fits perfectly.

See. We figured it out. We're kind of a big deal.
