Draft Pick Signings: 5/10/17

Today’s draft pick signings:

  • The Giants have agreed to terms with second-round defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson, tweet his agents at SportsTrust. Tomlinson, the No. 55 overall selection, could help New York make up for the loss of Johnathan Hankins, who signed a free agent deal with Indianapolis. Although he’s more of a nose tackle, Tomlinson will likely play much more three-technique for the Giants given the presence of All Pro Damon Harrison at nose. Tomlinson’s four-year deal with Big Blue should be worth approximately $4.572MM in total, while the Alabama product will receive a signing bonus of ~$1.465MM.
  • The Jets have signed sixth-round cornerback Jeremy Clark, the club announced today. Clark, a Michigan product, likely would have been selected much higher in the draft had he not torn his ACL after playing in only four games last season. Despite a pressing need in the defensive backfield, New York only picked one other corner (fellow sixth-rounder Derrick Jones) in addition to Clark, so the former Wolverine could have a shot to earn snaps during his rookie campaign. Clark, whose four-year deal should come with a signing bonus of roughly $148K, becomes the third Jets draft pick to sign, joining Jones and running back Elijah McGuire.
  • The Steelers announced that they’ve signed seventh-round linebacker Keion Adams. A Western Michigan product, Adams is viewed as an edge rusher in Pittsburgh’s 3-4 scheme, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL.com. As such, Adams could face an uphill battle to make the Steelers’ roster given that the club added first-rounder T.J. Watt to an outside linebacker crop that already includes Bud Dupree and James Harrison. Adams posted 13 sacks over his final two years with WMU.
