Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the New York Giants have agreed to terms with first round pick Andrew Thomas. While pen has yet to be put to paper, the fourth overall pick will sign his rookie deal pending a physical.
The #Giants and No. 4 overall pick OT Andrew Thomas from Georgia are in agreement on a four-year, fully guaranteed $32.345M contract with a $21.1M signing bonus, source said. The fourth top 5 pick to get his deal done, he’ll take a physical today and then sign.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 27, 2020
As Rapoport reports, Thomas’ deal is worth approximately $32.3 million. And while Thomas’ base salary is just $610,000 in 2020 year, he will also receive $5.271 million per year in pro-rated bonuses, per OverTheCap.
With Thomas now — or soon to be — under contract, the Giants can begin sorting out where Thomas will play. The rookie could play left tackle, bumping Nate Solder to right tackle, or man the right side. The hope is that Thomas becomes the Giants’ long-term answer at left tackle, but we don’t know where he will be starting his career.
It was reported earlier today that linebacker Cam Brown will also sign his rookie contract. That report was first provided by Art Stapleton, who added that linebacker T.J. Brunson and offensive tackle Matt Peart are likely to sign soon as well.
