Arizona Cardinals Sign Rookie Offensive Tackle Herman Johnson

Hat tip to El krem for breaking this news on ROTB. 

The Arizona Cardinals signed their first drafted rookie yesterday, when Herman Johnson agreed to a three year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed but he's expected to receive minimum salaries of $305,000, $385,000 and $460,000 and his signing bonus is expected to be around  $120,000. Johnson, formerly of LSU, played guard in college but so far during OTA's the Cardinals have been working him at right tackle. We recently looked at his future with the Cardinals and what we could expect from him this season.

Johnson is the first rookie to sign and this could be the first domino that falls as more rookies get locked up before training camp arrives. It's also worth remembering that the Cardinals will have to cut several players before they can sign all of their draft picks so keep an eye on that at the signings are announced. Who do you think will get signed next? Who are the first guys to get cut?
