Seahawks WR Paul Richardson Tweets he has signed his contract

Receiver Paul Richardson, Seattle’s first pick in the 2014 draft at No. 45 overall in the second round, Tweeted this afternoon that he has signed his rookie contract:

With rookie contracts now slotted via the terms of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, there’s little real negotiating going on, making these signings something of a formality.

According to OvertheCap.com, Richardson is due to get a $1.7 million signing bonus and the standard four-year contract worth roughly $4.7 million overall.

Five of Seattle’s nine 2014 draftees are now under contract — the others are DL Cassius Marsh, DB Eric Pinkins, DL Jimmy Staten and FB Kiero Small.
