Seventeen first- and second-rounders still unsigned


Seventeen first- and second-rounders still unsigned

Monday's NFL franchise tag deadline has come and gone. So what's up next on the league's calendar of expiration dates?

Circle August 7: Players under contract must report by this date to earn an accrued season. Also, teams have until this day to trade rights for unsigned drafted rookies.

If you're now wondering who's included in that latter group, you're following me brilliantly.

There are 17 first and second round draft picks without contracts.

Holdups could hinge on details like getting the fourth contract year guaranteed, getting the fifth year option included, and signing bonuses.

Here the players are, in order of when they were drafted.

No. 2 - QB RGIII - Redskins
No. 3 - RB Trent Richardson - Browns
No. 4 - T Matt Kalil - Vikings

No. 6 - CB Morris Claiborne - Cowboys
No. 7 - S Mark Barron - Buccaneers
No. 8 - QB Ryan Tannehill - Dolphins

No. 11 - DT Dontari Poe - Chiefs

No. 20 - WR Kendall Wright - Titans

No. 22 - QB Brandon Weeden - Browns
No. 23 - T Riley Reiff - Lions
