As the report date for training camp has gotten closer and closer, the Seahawks’ draft class remained largely unsigned. By the time the NFL and NFLPA agreed to a deal to return to team facilities last week, just fourth-round pick Colby Parkinson and sixth-round pick Freddie Swain were under contract with the club.
Now, with Seattle’s rookies scheduled to report on Tuesday, deals for the remaining six draft picks should come quickly. As of Monday morning, it has begun. According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Seahawks and first-round pick Jordyn Brooks agreed to terms on his rookie deal.
The Seahawks have agreed to terms with first-round pick Jordyn Brooks on his four-year rookie contract that includes a $6.458M signing bonus and a fifth-year option.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) July 27, 2020
The four-year deal for Brooks is worth a total of $12.35 million, including a $6.458 million signing bonus. Those numbers don’t take into account the fifth-year option that Seattle will have. Under the terms of the new CBA, Brooks’ fifth-year option would become fully guaranteed immediately upon being exercised, which would occur after his first three seasons.
In 2020, Brooks will occupy almost the same cap hit vacated over the weekend.

With Brooks joining Parkinson and Swain under contract with the Seahawks, expect the remaining five draft picks to agree to terms shortly.
