Jets Sign Dakota Dozier & Trevor Reilly To Contracts

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Hopefully there are no problems with contracts this year, and we can get on with the football.

The Jets are looking to secure their 2014 NFL draft selections nice and quickly, and they have made a positive start by signing two of their 12 selections.

Under the rookie wage-scale, all rookies are to be given four year contracts. It is estimated that Doziers contract will be worth $2,520,584 with a signing bonus of $300,584.

Dozier's cap hit should break down as follows:

2014: $495,146

2015: $585,146

2016: $675,146

2017: $765,146

Dakota played left tackle in college but will shift inside to guard at the next level. With his ability in the run game, he could be pushing towards the end of this season, or certainly next season for Willie Colon's starting spot. We're hoping to bring you an interview with Dakota at some point over the coming weeks.

The signing of one of their fourth round selections, came just moments after they announced they had signed 7th round selection Trevor Reilly. A  defensive pass rusher from Utah, Reilly will be 26 as a rookie due to a religious mission he served in Sweden. However I think he could be the steal of the draft and you can read more about him HERE.

Although the details of his contract have not been disclosed, using the rookie pay scale it is believed his deal will be worth $2,276,848 with a signing bonus of $56, 848. His expected contract will break down as follows:

2014: $434,212

2015: $524,212

2016: $614,212

2017: $704,212

Due to the size of the Jets 2012 draft class, they still have 10 players who remain unsigned. Lets get these guys signed as soon as possible. Rookie mini-camp starts on Monday
