Jets Sign Three Draft Picks

New, comments

Ahead of rookie minicamp, the Jets have signed three of the players they selected on the third day of the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Jets have signed cornerback Juston Burris, tackle Brandon Shell and punter Lachlan Edwards, their first three draft choice signings ahead of the rookie minicamp at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center that begins Friday.

Burris was selected in the fourth round out of NC State. The Jets traded up to get Shell in the fifth round. He played in college at South Carolina. Edwards was picked in the seventh round out of Sam Houston State.

These are formalities. The rookie wage scale has largely ended the acrimony of contract negotiations between teams and early picks. I have never heard of a middle or late round pick holding out. They know the money is not going to be very good by NFL standards.

The Jets will start their rookie minicamp today.
