The New Orleans Saints now have all of their 2018 draft picks under contract.

The team announced Monday that third-round pick Tre'Quan Smith signed his four-year rookie deal.

Smith, a wide receiver from Central Florida, was the last remaining draft pick to sign his deal. The other six draft picks, including first-rounder Marcus Davenport, signed their rookie contracts two weeks ago before rookie minicamp.



Rookie contracts have slotted salaries for players under the current collective bargaining agreement, so there's rarely much negotiation between the team and a player's representatives.

I wonder what took so long? His agent must have wanted certain guarantees.

I don't think rookie contracts can include negotiated guarantees. Outside of first rounders the only thing that can be negotiated is when the slotted signing bonus is paid. The teams prefer something like half now and the rest at some point during the season. Some agent demand that it be paid completely up front.
