The Miami Dolphins announced the signing of four of their 2018 NFL Draft selections on Friday. The team officially agreed to terms with first-round selection, safety Minkah Fitzpatrick; sixth-round pick, cornerback Cornell Armstrong; seventh-round pick, linebacker Quentin Poling; and seventh-round selection, kicker Jason Sanders.

The Dolphins were down to about $300,000 in salary cap space until 4pm Friday, when they received $17 million in relief from the post-June 1 designation they placed on defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh when they released him.

Fitzpatrick, the 11th overall selection, signed a four-year contract worth $16.4 million, with a $10 million signing bonus, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The Dolphins hold a fifth-year option on the safety. The other three should all be signed to standard four-year rookie contracts.

The team still has tight end Mike Gesicki, linebacker Jerome Baker, tight end Durham Smythe, and running back Kalen Ballage from their draft class to sign. Miami begins their next offseason training program, the team’s mandatory veteran minicamp, on Tuesday.
