    Dave can you tell me how this works. So McCullers and Blanchflower are officially signed so they get they money but how do all other draft picks survive in their new city until they sign their deal? Do they get like $20,000 for the time being for rent, utilities, food etc. or do they have to survive on their parents or agents money?

    What do they do at these camps for linemen? There’s no contact right?

    only the late round picks can be signed until after June 1st, when they get more cap room
