The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Friday that they signed rookie offensive guard Kevin Zeitler, the team's second first-round draft pick during the 2012 NFL draft, selected at No. 27 overall, ten spots after rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. Details of the contract are currently unknown, but we can make our assumptions.

Linebacker Nick Perry, selected one spot after Zeitler, signed a four-year deal worth $7.5 million with $6.4 million guaranteed, including a $4 million signing bonus. So you can imagine that Zeitler's deal won't be less than that. Perhaps

That leaves two rookies from this year's class currently unsigned; defensive tackle Brandon Thompson and wide receiver Mohamed Sanu.
