Steelers Sign Draft Picks, Wesley Johnson, Jordan Zumwalt
There was a ton of good news on Tuesday during the Pittsburgh Steelers first OTA practice of the 2014 season and even more good news has now surfaced this evening as two more draft picks have now come to terms.
According to Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest, linebacker Jordan Zumwalt and offensive lineman Wesley Johnson have both signed their four-year contracts as of Tuesday evening.
While the details have yet to be released, Johnson’s deal is expected to total out somewhere in the neighborhood of $2.365 million and that includes a signing bonus of roughly about $144,500. Johnson was the Steelers second of two fifth-round draft picks.
Zumwalt, the Steelers first of two sixth-round draft picks, likely signed a deal worth roughly $2.3248 million that included a signing bonus of just under $105,000.
The Steelers now have four of their nine draft picks under contract as tight end Rob Blanchflower and defensive lineman Daniel McCullers have already signed their deals.
