Four Steelers rookies are looking to cash in beginning today.
The remaining four unsigned draft picks, Ryan Shazier, Stephon Tuitt, Dri Archer and Martavis Bryant, will presumably sign their contracts at some point this week, probably sooner rather than later.
We're further presuming none of the four of them will have had a job that paid them, before taxes, $5.6 million, like Shazier is about to bank in his signing bonus, so this is probably a pretty exciting day or week or both for all of them.
Here's a look again at the salary cap figures each of the unsigned rookies can expect to be accounted for after they sign their rookie deals.
