If this is true he's the first 1st rounder to sign.

I'm just a little surprised the Texans haven't already been in negotiations with Jackson. I hope they are close on Tate and Graham. Was hoping to have them both signed this week. I can't understand why Graham hasn't signed yet. His contract should be pretty easy since the players in front of him and behind him have all signed. It should be pretty straight forward.

114 Baltimore Dennis Pitta - TE 3 year $1.586 million contract, $371,000 signing bonus
115 New York Giants Phillip Dillard - ILB 4 year $2.283 million contract, $492,644 signing bonus
116 Pittsburgh Thaddeus Gibson - OLB 3 year $1.581 million contract, $366,000 signing bonus
117 Atlanta Joe Hawley - C 4 year $2.273 million contract, $483,000 signing bonus
118 Houston Garrett Graham - TE
119 Miami A. J. Edds - OLB 4 year $2.267 million contract, $477,000 signing bonus
120 Cincinnati Geno Atkins - DT 4 year $2.262 million contract, $472,450 signing bonus
121 Philadelphia Keenan Clayton - OLB 4 year $2.257 million contract, $466,790 signing bonus

If it makes anyone feel better, I was listening to somebody say last year at this time, there were only two 1st round picks signed, and one of them was Matthew Stafford - who agreed to terms before he was even selected.

FWIW, the other one was Mark Sanchez who signed in the first half of June.

Looking at your list of signed draft choices, I could see the number of years of the contract being a sticking point. The Texans may want to lock in Graham for 4 years. Graham may want to get to his 4th season as a RFA.

With 56 TE's on the roster, I would be pushing for 3 if I represented him.

Think you guys worry too much. He is going to sign before camp.

On Jackson, the Texans are usually one of the contract setters not followers.

Via Adam Schefter's twitter a cheat cheat for 1st round signings. Jackson should get about 9.5 guaranteed.

Yep. That's probably about the only thing it could be. The shouldn't be an issue in this case.
