Former Ohio State defensive end Zach Harrison signs rookie deal with Falcons
We continue to follow all of the NFL rookie signings for Ohio State football players that heard their names called in the draft three weeks ago and have another one to report to you.
Former 5-star prospect and four-year starting defensive end, Zach Harrison, has inked his entry contract with the Atlanta Falcons according to a team announcement last Tuesday. As we’ve mentioned multiple times, these contracts aren’t usually public knowledge, but we like to lean on the website Spotrac and its sliding scale of estimated NFL contracts to get a ballpark of what the value of the contract might be.
In this case, it’s estimated that Harrison’s contract has a total worth of around $5,568,448 over four years, with $1,049,780 of that being guaranteed as a signing bonus.
