Scramble'11: Lions' entire draft class signed
By Kevin Seifert
Last post of the night (probably.)
The Detroit Lions will open training camp Friday morning with all of their draft choices under contract. First-round draft pick Nick Fairley agreed to terms late Thursday night, he said via Twitter. Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports it is a four-year deal worth $10 million. Keep those numbers in mind when the Minnesota Vikings go to sign quarterback Christian Ponder, who was taken one spot above Fairley in the April draft.
I expect most NFC North draft picks to be signed by the end of the weekend. We'll update you on everyone Friday.
