The Los Angeles Rams’ rookie minicamp is underway after kicking off on Friday and with that, they’re beginning to get their draft picks under contract. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Tutu Atwell has agreed to terms on his rookie deal with the Rams.

Atwell was the team’s top draft pick this year, going 57th overall out of Louisville. He’s a speedy receiver with excellent explosiveness, joining the Rams as their field stretcher like DeSean Jackson.

Some were surprised that the Rams took Atwell, who’s only 5-foot-9 and 155 pounds, as early as they did in the second round. But even if he’s not a starter as a rookie, he’ll likely play a major role in 2022 and beyond.

His rookie contract is for four years and is expected to carry a cap hit of $1.07 million in 2021 alone, with that number rising by about $300,000 each year.
