We’ve known for the better part of a month which NFL team former Oregon Ducks left tackle Penei Sewell would be playing with to start his professional career, but it was made official this week as the first-round pick finally signed his rookie contract and assured his major pay-day.
As the No. 7 overall pick, Sewell guaranteed himself a massive contract thanks to the rookie wage scale, and his four-year contract comes with over $24 million guaranteed.
While the Lions already have left tackle Taylor Decker signed for the next few years, there are some questions about where Sewell will play at the start of the season, but it’s hard to believe that he will even sniff the bench, especially with that number next to his name.
