Dolphins Sign Duo Of Rookie Class To Deals

The Miami Dolphins front office had a busy day today, as they completed two rookie deals.

The deals that were agreed upon were with 5th round pick Nolan Carroll, and 7th round pick Austin Spitler.

Spitler, a linebacker from Ohio State was the first of the two to ink his deal, which was a four year deal, worth $1.83 million, which is including his $40,000 signing bonus.

Spitler has showed in the off-season practices so far that he is looking to find his niche on the team as a special teams ace. He has impressed while performing in special teams drills, and will look to make an impact in that area during his rookie year.

Cornerback Nolan Caroll’s deal is believed to be worth $1.981 million, along with a signing bonus worth in the ballpark of $191,000 included in that above figure as well.

Carroll is expected to contribute as a backup cornerback this year, and is expected to compete for the nickel corner job at some point in the future.

With the Dolphins signing the two rookies to their respective deals, that leaves only four more players from this rookie class left unsigned, and only one more that was selected after the first three rounds (Reshad Jones,5th round).

Since both Jones and Carroll were selected in the same round (the 5th), Jones should be inking his contract soon.
