Ravens sign first-round pick Hayden Hurst
The Ravens’ entire draft class is now signed.
Baltimore signed first-round tight end Hayden Hurst today, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, Hurst is due a four-year, $11.1 million deal as the 25th overall pick in the draft. He’ll also have a fifth-year option, like every first-round pick.
A former minor league baseball player who once got a $400,000 signing bonus from the Pittsburgh Pirates, Hurst caught 44 passes for 559 yards and two touchdowns at South Carolina last year.
The Ravens had two first-round picks and have already signed the other first-rounder, quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Adam Vinatieri not looking to hang them up anytime soon
Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri will likely be making some history in 2018.
That way, you’ve got to have that versatility in that room, that if somebody gets injured or something like that, the next guy’s gotta be up, Edwards said, via the team’s website. And he’s [a great example], especially for the young guys — ‘Hey, the more that you can do, the longer you’re going to be able to stick around and help us win football games.’
The Vikings have had a need for a body at safety as Andrew Sendejo has been out with an undisclosed injury and Newman got into the spirit by wearing Sendejo’s No. 34 on the practice field. If he and Harrison Smith stay healthy in the regular season, Newman’s reps at safety may not come into play directly but all that experience will factor into Minnesota’s defense one way or another.
Terez Owens first reported the rumored coupling in April, after Vonn, 33, was spotted at a number of Subban’s games. Following Nashville’s elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs, the athletically gifted duo took in Game 7 of the Cavaliers-Celtics series in late May.
Vonn previously dated NFL coach Kenan Smith for a year, before calling it quits last November.
