Bills sign first-round pick Tremaine Edmunds to contract

The Buffalo Bills have one of their two first-round draft picks in the fold.

The team announced Saturday that linebacker Tremaine Edmunds signed his rookie contract. The deal is for four years, and includes a team option for a fifth as a first-round pick. Edmunds was chosen with the 16th overall selection, after the Bills traded up from No. 22 with the Baltimore Ravens.

Last year's 16th overall pick, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey, signed a four-year deal worth a total of $11.847 million, all of which is guaranteed. Edmunds' deal is expected to come in at slightly more than that.

With Edmunds under contract, the Bills now have six of their eight 2018 draft picks signed, with only first-round quarterback Josh Allen and third-round defensive tackle Harrison Phillips left without a deal.
