Lunch is on David Wilson at rookie minicamp today.

The first-round pick signed his rookie contract this morning, just hours before he hits the practice field for the first time as a member of the Giants. It’s a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth, according to a source. He’s slotted for a signing bonus of about $3.3 million.

The signing was first reported this morning by Pro Football Talk. The terms were first reported by the Star-Ledger.

The signing leaves the Giants with only two of their seven draft picks unsigned: second-rounder Rueben Randle and seventh-rounder Markus Kuhn. The rest of them have all inked. Of course, Randle and Kuhn are more than welcome to participate in the rookie minicamp this weekend, and they will. They just have to sign an injury waiver. They won’t be considered a holdout (and unable to take the field) unless they are unsigned at the start of training camp in about two and a half months. Considering it took less than two and a half weeks to sign the majority of the draft picks and the CBA makes negotiations on these contracts rather effortless, that shouldn’t be a problem. In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked if Kuhn and Randle are both signed by the time they leave here this weekend.
