Rookie Mini-Camp Update #1 – Four Draft Picks Signed

From the Truman Sports Complex

On Thursday night, Devon Wylie became the richest person in his family when he signed a four-year contract with the Chiefs as their fourth-round draft choice. Despite the riches – the deal falls around $2.55 million overall with a $455,000 signing bonus – Wylie has made no plans for a splurge once he’s done with the team’s three-day mini-camp.

“I’ve always been stingy with money growing up,” Wylie said after completing practice Friday afternoon at the Chiefs facility. “The first thing I’m going to do is hold on to it, think about it and do something smart.”

On Friday afternoon the Chiefs announced that half of their eight-man class from the 2012 NFL Draft had signed contracts. Joining Wylie were sixth-round choice RB Cyrus Gray and seventh round selections DT Jerome Long and WR Junior Hemingway.

That leaves four more draft choices to sign, including first-round selection NT Dontari Poe. More than a half-dozen first-round draft choices have already signed contracts.
