It might be undisclosed at this point, or it might come out tomorrow when the signing is official.

Or, yeah - naptime. LOL

I'm not even talking about the details of the deal. I know he'll include that when it's available. It's the writing sometimes that just kills me. Your post is more along the lines of what I would expect from a "professional sports writer" is that really too much to ask? I guess so.

Back to work. had to rant.

As of recently yes.

In the past five years, more and more teams have switched from three- to four-year contracts for all draft picks below the second round. Any term longer than four years was outlawed by the 2006 extension of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, restricting all contracts below the first round to four years. As a result, almost all teams except a couple of holdouts now negotiate four-year contracts (interestingly, the two Super Bowl participants, Arizona and Pittsburgh, still do three-year deals in the lower rounds; maybe there’s something to that).

The details may never be available. I guess some players prefer to keep their contracts private. Here are some of the players picked before and after GQ and their deals:

107 Jacksonville Mike Thomas - WR 4 year $2,257,450 contract, $507,450 signing bonus
108 Miami Brian Hartline - WR 4 year $2.25 million contract, $500,000 signing bonus
109 Green Bay T.J. Lang - OT 4 year $2,252,500 contract, $502,500 signing bonus
110 Dallas Victor Butler - DE
111 Carolina Mike Goodson - RB 4 year undisclosed contract
112 Houston Glover Quin - CB 4 year undisclosed contract
113 San Diego Vaughn Martin - DT
114 Denver David Bruton - S
115 Detroit Sammie Lee Hill - DT
116 New Orleans Chip Vaughn - S
117 Tampa Bay Kyle Moore - DE 4 year undisclosed contract
118 New Orleans Stanley Arnoux - LB - IR
119 Chicago D.J. Moore - CB - 4 year undisclosed contract
120 Dallas Brandon Williams - DE
121 Buffalo Shawn Nelson - TE
122 Houston Anthony Hill - TE Undisclosed contract
123 New England Rich Ohrnberger - G 4 year $2.201 million contract, $451,000 signing bonus



Based on what I read here, he will probably get between $2,252,500 and $2,201,000 over 4 years with a signing bonus somewhere between $500,000 and $450,000.

Yep you're correct, I read "fifth" yesterday too. That's worse than making the original error.

Maybe it's part of the Texans' negotiation process:

Texans: Hi Connor we really want you on the team, so we're willing to pay you the top dollar amount in the fifth round where we drafted you.

Connor's agent: Ummmm, that's not right.

Texans: Okay, okay you caught us...third round money it is!

It isn't an issue of "get" a 4 year deal. Players fight for shorter contracts as they are generally a small signing bonus and then league minimum each year. If he had his way, he would have signed a 3 year deal. The salary isn't guaranteed anyway.

Texans Sign Another 4th-Rounder
by Adam Caplan of ScoutNFLNetwork.com, July 17, 2009 at 9:57pm ET

Glover Quinn Profile

The Houston Texans have signed the first of their two fourth-round draft picks, CB Glover Quin, the team announced on Friday.

According to a league source, the former University of New Mexico defensive back signed a four-year deal worth $2.24 million. The deal also includes a signing bonus of roughly $490,000.

Quin, a Mississippi native, played in 36 career games, starting 34 for the Lobos. He earned consensus first team all-Mountain West Conference honors as a senior. He finished his career with 156 tackles, a school record 32 pass break-ups and seven interceptions.

Quin was voted most valuable player by his teammates last season, the first defensive back to earn the honor since Brian Urlacher in 1999. As a senior he led the Mountain West Conference with a career-high five interceptions and ranked first in the league with 16 passes defensed.

Quin began his collegiate career at Southwest Mississippi Community College, posting 40 tackles, eight deflections, two interceptions and one touchdown in his lone season of play in 2005. He attended North Pike High School in Summit, Mississippi finishing as a four-year letterman in football and basketball. He was the Jaguar's team MVP in both sports as a senior. He totaled 2,552 rushing yards, 224 tackles and 13 interceptions in his prep career.

Quinn will compete for playing time this season against young cornerbacks such as rookie Brice McCain, Antwaun Molden, and Fred Bennett.
