Two former Kentucky Wildcats have agreed to terms and signed their rookie contracts.
It was announced Thursday that the Washington Football Team and Jamin Davis have got their deal in place. This contract for Davis is fully guaranteed over the four years. It also includes a fifth-year option.
Davis burst onto the scene this past season, taking over the starting role for Chris Oats after the medical issues with him came up. Davis stepped right in, and proved that he was one of the best linebackers in the country.
Whether it was in run defense, pass rushing through the gaps, or even shining in pass coverage, he showed the traits that teams are now looking for with inside linebackers. At the professional level, in particularly because of his coverage skills, fans should fully expect Davis to be a three-down linebacker. Not to mention the free runs he will get into the backfield playing behind one of the best defensive lines in the NFL.
Quinton Bohanna has also reached terms for his rookie contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Bohanna’s contract is a four-year deal worth up to $3.48 million over the span of the deal.
When Bohanna was selected by the Cowboys in the sixth round, the fit overall was a head scratcher at first. Ever since the draft though it seems as though the selection is starting to get more buzz than skepticism. He proved at his time at Kentucky that he has the grit to force his way into playing time, and with rookie minicamps getting underway, don't be shocked to see more positive buzz coming out about Quinton.
Congrats to both guys on getting that big payday, and best of luck at rookie camp!
