Oh ye of little faith! We told you to spend your time doing something other than worrying, and as always, we didn't steer you wrong. With just over a week separating us from July 25th, a day when the Philadelphia Eagles rookies will report to their first NFL training camp, they announced the signing of Kelee Ringo.

He had previously been the only remaining member of their seven-man 2023 NFL Draft class that hadn't been officially inked. We can now put that behind us and move forward.

At the time of this story's release, the details haven't been released, but with Ringo being drafted 105th overall, one spot after Jakorian Bennett (Las Vegas Raiders) and one selection ahead of Blake Freeland (Indianapolis Colts), we can assume the former Georgia Bulldog's first deal will be in the range of theirs.

Here are some early theories about what Kelee Ringo's first contract with the Philadelphia Eagles might look like.

Per Spotrac, Bennett signed a four-year, $4,663,596 deal that includes an $823,596 signing bonus, $823,596 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $1,165,899. He'll earn a base salary of $750,000 in 2023. He'll also carry a dead cap value of $823,596.

Freeland remains unsigned by the Colts, but Spotrac also reports the draft's 107th selection, Jake Andrews, inked a four-year, $4,648,344 contract with the New England Patriots. That includes an $808,344 signing bonus, $808,344 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $1,162,086.

Andrews will earn a base salary of $750,000 and a signing bonus of $808,344 in 2023. He carries a cap hit of $952,086 and a dead cap value of $808,344. Expect Kelee Ringo's deal to be slightly heavier than that and a tad lighter than the deal Bennett was given by Las Vegas.
