Maybin last AFC East rookie unaccounted for


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

The Buffalo Bills have the AFC East's last meaningful rookie contract to hammer out.

The Miami Dolphins reportedly have reached terms with their final three unsigned draft picks, making sure everybody will be on the field when training camp opens Sunday in Davie, Fla.

The Dolphins have reached agreements with quarterback Pat White (second round) and Chris Clemons (fifth round). The club announced it signed cornerback Vontae Davis, the 25th overall pick.

Edgar Thompson of the Palm Beach Post, citing a league source, reports White's contract is for four years and $4.5 million, with a little more than half of it guaranteed. Clemons' agent confirmed a four-year deal.

So where does that leave us with unsigned rookies?

Maybin, the 11th overall selection, essentially is it.

Maybin is sandwiched by two other unsigned rookies: San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree and Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno. Neither appears to be on the verge of signing.

The New York Jets locked in all three of their three draft picks quickly.

The lone unsigned New England Patriot is outside linebacker Tyrone McKenzie, who is out for the season with a torn ACL.

McKenzie was injured at rookie minicamp. The collective bargaining agreement specifies teams must negotiate in good faith to work out a contract commensurate with the contract of the player drafted in the same slot -- in McKenzie's case, 97th overall -- the year before.
