As NFL rookie mini-camps begin across America, former Wildcats are making money signing contracts. Lonnie Johnson is the latest to put pen to paper.
The former UK cornerback, selected in the second round at No. 54 overall, signed a deal worth a reported $5.24 million, with $3.02 guaranteed. That does not include his seven-figure signing bonus. Not bad for a kid from Gary, Indiana.
For those keeping track at home, Benny Snell signed a four-year deal worth around $3.2 million that includes a $700,000 signing bonus. Cornerback Chris Westry pulled in $100,000, and that does not include a $10,000 signing bonus.
Mike Edwards, Josh Allen and a few other Wildcats have yet to put pen to paper. I have a feeling the piece of paper Allen signs will be worth just a few doll hairs.
