Mitchell Trubisky is one of the few draft picks who has yet to sign his rookie contract , with training camp right around the corner.

This was thought to be the sticking point in Mitchell Trubisky ’s negotiations last offseason. He waited until a week before training camp — July 19 — to sign his deal. This year, 15 of the 32 first-round picks have signed their rookie contracts , including fellow linebackers Tremaine Edmunds (No. 16

When will Mitchell Trubisky sign his rookie contract?© Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports When will Mitchell Trubisky sign his rookie contract? The 2017 NFL Draft was more than two months ago, and now mid-way through July, eight draft picks still have yet to sign their rookie contract, including Chicago Bears second-overall pick Mitchell Trubisky.

Last offseason, San Diego Chargers third-overall pick Joey Bosa turned his rookie contract negotiations into a full-blown holdout that lasted until late August, causing him to miss all of training camp and three of his team's preseason games.

The Bears have a little bit different type of pressure to get Trubisky signed. They don't need him to be in training camp to get ready for the regular season; the plan is to keep him on the bench.

Report: Kings, Zach Randolph agree to two-year, $24 million contract

  Report: Kings, Zach Randolph agree to two-year, $24 million contract The Sacramento Kings have agreed to sign free agent forward Zach Randolph to a two-year, $24 million contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The news comes on the heels of Sacramento’s reported deal with free agent guard George Hill. Randolph, 35, averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds last season with the Grizzlies. He will reunite with former Memphis coach Dave Joerger in Sacramento.

The Chicago Bears finally signed quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to his rookie contract Wednesday after trading up to select the former North Carolina signal-caller with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft

The young Bears quarterback had a rough rookie season, but now he's in the right situation to maximize his skill set. Mitchell Trubisky signs an autograph for what seems like a fan to him, but is really Bears backup QB Chase Daniel.

They want him on the practice field to get as development as possible with his teammates to prepare him for the future. It does give the rookie some leverage, though, because he knows he isn't missing out on any major playing time if he misses training camp.

That being said, it's too early for Bears fans to panic yet. Training camp doesn't begin until July 26. Until then, it doesn't make much difference if he is under contract or not.

The clock is certainly ticking, but he could easily sign with the Bears any day now, and the whole situation would be much ado about nothing. However, if the Bears report to Bourbonnais, Illinois, and only 89 players show up, that might be the time to get the pitchforks and torches.

Ryan Pace traded up to get his franchise quarterback of the future. At some point, he's going to be forced to bite the bullet and get a deal done. He's invested too much in Trubisky already to let anything get in the way of his development.

One report about Sam Darnold could be changing everything for teams like the Jets in 2017.So many dominos could fall from one brief-but-stunning report this week. Sam Darnold — yes, that Sam Darnold — might not leave school next spring and enter the 2018 draft.

He ended up signing when players reported, and missed no time. This year, the 49ers are still working to sign Solomon Thomas to his rookie contract . If there are issues like this, having Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2 and Leonard Fournette at No. 4 signed should simplify this to a certain extent.

Mitchell Trubisky is officially a member of the Chicago Bears. The No. 2 pick in the draft finally signed his rookie deal Wednesday, the team announced in a statement. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the four-year contract is worth million fully guaranteed along with a
