Dolphins sign TE Arthur Lynch

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins announced yesterday they had signed fifth round draft choice Arthur Lynch to his four-year rookie contract.

The Miami Dolphins last night announced the signing of fifth-round draft choice, tight end Arthur Lynch.  Under the rookie wage scale, Lynch's deal should be approximately $2.41 million over four seasons.  He will have a salary-cap number of around $470,000 this season.

Lynch is the second signing to be reported from the Dolphins' draft class, joining fellow fifth-round pick linebacker Jordan Tripp.  The team has not officially announced Tripp's signing, meaning the deal likely did not reach the NFL offices before close on Thursday - and making Lynch the first player to "officially" sign with Miami from the draft class.

The Dolphins have six more draft choices to sign, including first-round choice Ja'Wuan James.  The team is holding their rookie minicamp this weekend, and could continue to sign the draft picks throughout the weekend.  

Last year, first-round choice, defensive end Dion Jordan, signed his contract on the first day of training camp in July, ending  streak of holdouts with the team's first-round pick after Mike Pouncey missed the first few days of camp in 2011 and Ryan Tannehill followed suit in 2012.
