The Seahawks and first-round pick Germain Ifedi have agreed to terms on a contract, a source tells ESPN's Adam Caplan. Ifedi, the 31st overall pick, is expected to get a chance to win the starting right guard spot. Down the road, he projects as a right tackle. The Seahawks begin a three-day rookie camp today.

No surprise: Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is done with the Moritz Boehringer hoopla. "The feel-good story is over," Zimmer said at the opening of rookie minicamp. Time to focus on football for the old-school coach, who teased the German WR for being a celeb.

The Bengals' locker room resembled a study hall early Friday. In between interviews with reporters, several rookies (drafted, undrafted and try-out players) were burying themselves inside their locker cubby holes or sitting on the floor while flipping through team-issued notebooks and taking notes. Like other rookies around the league, they are getting their first taste of an NFL playbook. Alas, the schooling continues.
