According to Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network, Cross’ deal is worth $5.065 million with a signing bonus of $864,100.

His supreme athleticism may be hard to keep off the field, especially if Blackmon needs more time to rehab from Achilles reconstruction surgery.
There is a lot of upside with Cross, who doesn’t turn 21 years old until September. We’ll see how much work he gets during his rookie season, but there is a lot of optimism for the Maryland safety.
The only remaining draft picks yet to sign their rookie deals are wide receiver Alec Pierce, tight end Jelani Woods and offensive tackle Bernhard Raimann.
