Linebacker Nakobe Dean had to wait until the second day of the draft to find a home.
But he’s among the first going off the board when it comes to signing his rookie deal.
The Eagles announced on Monday that the third-round pick signed his four-year rookie deal.
The Philadelphia Eagles confirmed the move.
“Now let’s work!” Dean wrote following the draft last month.
Dean signed a four-year deal worth $5.18 million. He’ll count $943,000 against the cap in 2022.
Dean is the fourth of five Eagles picks to sign, including first-round pick Jordan Davis.
