RE: Rockets in the NFL/CFL/AFL: 2019
smart developmental type contract by packers. NFL scout on Hollman was that he had the tools to be a high level press corner but needed time to develop. with this contract the packers get a (by NFL standards) bargain salary that they can always get out of by cutting him, yet hold his rights for 4 years. if he develops and plays well he's super-cheap for now and in 4 years you can give him a nice deal to stay and play through his prime. but if he doesn't develop as hoped you didn't blow any money.

RE: Rockets in the NFL/CFL/AFL: 2019
For those looking to catch rockets in highlights and such, jersey numbers for newly signed rockets so far:

Hollman 29
Thompson 83
Woodside 5
Weiss 72
Elliott 58

Rumors Diontae Johnson will wear 18, but haven't seen that officially yet. No word on J. Johnson or Howard.

I'm so excited to have DJ here in da Burgh.
The intelligent sportscasters here in Pittsburgh are excited with this pick. I think Diontae can really flourish here with JuJu and Ben.

I guess when you write a story about a player from Toledo, any random picture of someone in a Toledo uniform will do.

That seems like a pretty important reward to receive, especially for an undrafted rookie WR. Obviously, he has people's attention.

Johnson has officially signed with the Steelers. Terms not released, but with the rookie salary scale, it's easy to estimate what the terms are. All entry level contracts are 4 years, and his should be around $4.2M total, including a $1.1M signing bonus. You can see all the draftee contract values here:

he'll take home about 55-60% after taxes and agent fees. the bonus is a lump sum and none of the 4 years are guaranteed, although 3rd round picks typically get at least 2 years to prove something.

Quiet debut for 3rd-round pick Diontae Johnson
https://triblive.com/sports/quiet-debut-...e-johnson/

Where do they find these writers. Bad enough that he says Antonio Brown "overcame the stigma associated with playing at a non-Power 5 school", but he also apparently thinks Johnson is 26 years old. Yeesh.

He even screwed up the Miami game stats which were 6 rec 119 yds 2 TD. I’m surprised he spelled his name correctly. 03-banghead

Looks like he has Johnson at 22 or 23, not 26. Four months older than another guy who’s 22. Surprising to see him down the list aways and behind an UFA.

They must have edited the article, cause originally it said Shuster was 4 years younger. One of the comments calls that out.

It appears Tuzar Skipper is in camp with the Steelers and is wearing #15. That makes three Rockets. Ola (92), Tuzar (15) and Diontae (18).
