    Any word on signing Peterson?

    Is there any word at all coming out of Valhalla about signing Peterson, or Rice....or any of our draft picks for that matter?
    Getting about time to get that stuff done isnt it?

    Nothing yet. There is nothing to get worried about yet. I think the Bears are the only team to sign their #1 pick.

    The signing will happen rather quickly as the training camp dates draw closer.

    Some third and fourth round picks are starting to get signed. But the top ten picks will be the last ones to sign. They won't be signed until right as camp starts, and in some cases some will hold out. Look at Erasmus, he was almost late. It doesn't matter how much Peterson wants to be on time, they have agents and until the business part is right they won't be signed. That being said, I believe we'll get our guys in camp on time... As for Jamarcus Russell and a few others... I can see a hold out here and there.

    It shouldn't be anywhere near the Bush deal..... they're all slotted essentially.

    It may go up a bit from the previous year but that's a solid starting point for what to expect (last year's #7)

    Thats kind of stupid. Not you the fact. Whos going to release a top ten pick even if he does get injured for some of the year most won't release him it would be smart to just sign him sooner. They would be probably more safe to sign them a fourth rounder
    Right?
