Arizona Cardinals Sign Four Rookies To Four-Year Contracts

Arizona Cardinals tackle Bobby Massie is just one of four players to sign a four-year contract.

Once the Arizona Cardinals signed Calais Campbell to a five-year extension, they were able to remove the franchise tag label from him. In doing so, they created over $5 million in cap space. That money could be used towards signing another veteran free agent, but first, the team needed to square away its rookies.

They did just that on Tuesday, signing four different players to long term deals. To see who they are, hit the jump.

Via Darren Urban:

Although the two top picks from this year's draft remain unsigned (Michael Floyd and Jamell Fleming), there is no need to get nervous at this point. With the new collective bargaining agreement set in place, the rookie contracts have become more slotted. The holdouts that used to occur with first round picks don't really occur as much anymore because it is already known what they are going to earn.

Having Massie, Kelemete, Lindley and Bethel under contract is nice to see. The team can now shift their focus on signing the remaining drafted players (which includes Nate Potter as well). Look for the remaining players to get signed within the next week or two.
