Seahawks top pick Paul Richardson Tweets he has signed his contract

Second-round pick Paul Richardson, the Seahawks’ first pick in the 2014 draft, indicated via Twitter that he has signed with the team.

The receiver from Colorado, who was the No. 45 overall pick, is the fifth of nine Seahawks draft picks to sign his contract along with DE Cassius Marsh, CB Eric Pinkins, DT Jimmy Staten and FB Kiero Small.

The league’s most recent collective bargaining agreement, signed in 2011, calls for rookie contracts to be slotted based on draft position, so there is little drama in player signings unlike in the past, when top picks would sometimes hold out at the beginning of training camp. Now, a player’s deal is pretty much locked into his draft position, so it’s only a matter of when the two sides sit down to finalize the contract.
