With the NFL's rookie wage scale in place, no longer do fans of the San Diego Chargers have to worry about length holdout over contract negotiations with the team's draft picks. The money is pre-determined, and all the team and player have to agree upon is the length of the contract (and there's not much wiggle room there). That being said, the team has officially agreed to terms with their first rookie.
#Chargers second-round pick DE Kendall Reyes has agreed to terms, a source confirms.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) May 8, 2012
Another source claims that the deal is four years long, pretty standard for a 2nd round selection. That should give Reyes plenty of time to work his way up the depth chart and become the starter, should he reach his potential.
