Updating NFC North rookie signings
By Kevin Seifert
The NFL's new collective bargaining agreement has made the signing of draft picks pretty routine, and NFC North teams are motoring along as three of them approach rookie minicamps this weekend. Let's update where things stand for each team as of this moment:
Chicago Bears: All but two picks are signed: First-rounder Shea McClellin and third-rounder Brandon Hardin.
Detroit Lions: Like the Bears, all but two picks are signed: First-rounder Riley Reiff and third-rounder Dwight Bentley.
Green Bay Packers: The team hasn't announced any deals, but the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that fourth-rounder Jerron McMillian has agreed to terms.
Minnesota Vikings: The team hasn't announced any agreements.
