As more and more draft picks sign their rookie contracts, the Buffalo Bills have inked first-round draft pick Stephon Gilmore to a four-year contract. Gilmore's deal is believed to be worth around $12.1 million with a fifth-year option that will be worth the 2015 transition tag for cornerbacks, according to a report by Albert Breer of NFL Network.
The Bills used the 10th overall pick to select the South Carolina cornerback, who already made a big impression on coaches in the team's rookie mini-camp a few weeks ago. Gilmore was viewed as a playmaking cornerback who seemed to rise as we got closer to the NFL Draft, leading many draft experts to note he could be a surprise Top 10 pick.
With Gilmore under contract, the Bills can now focus on getting the rest of their draft class under contract.
