Less than 12 hours after the New York Giants agreed to terms with cornerback Jayron Hosley and offensive tackle Brandon Mosley, they have also signed first-round pick David Wilson, running back out of Virginia Tech, to a four-year deal.

Pro Football Talk reports that the four-year deal also comes with a fifth-year team option. His agent has since confirmed the report, meaning only wide receiver Rueben Randle and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn remain without a contract.

Mike Garafolo of The Star-Ledger reports that as of Thursday night, Randle and the Giants had been unable to come to an agreement. However, even without contracts/agreements, all rookies will be able to participate in mini-camp and OTA's leading up to training camp.

Wilson's signing bonus will be in the $3.3 million range. More specific financial details and a yearly breakdown of his salary have not yet been made public.

    The 5th year option … especially on a RB … is a big deal.

    I really can’t wait to see this kid run the ball. I really can’t wait to see this kid catch the ball.

    This aspect of the new CBA is great. Rookies everywhere are signing right away. Now the NFL is much like the NBA in terms of rookies never holding out.

    How could Randle and the team “not come to an agreement”? I thought each slot was pretty much fixed at this point in regard to compensation. Is there some wiggle room in these deals?
