Giants agree to contract terms with 6th round pick

DeAndre Wright agrees to terms with the New York Giants
Minicamp is over and training camp is still six weeks away, but the Giants have begun the process of getting their nine draft picks under contract. Cornerback DeAndre Wright, their sixth-round pick from New Mexico, is the first player to agree to terms, according to his agent, Kenny Zuckerman, of Priority Sports.

Zuckerman wouldn't discuss the terms of the contract, but based on the signings so far, the signing bonus should be in the area of $92,000, with the total value of the deal coming in at just under $2 million over four years. Also, based on deals of those drafted near Wright, escalators and incentives will likely give Wright the opportunity to make up to about $4 million over the length of the contract.

The 5-11, 198-pound Wright, whose draft stock plummeted when he suffered a pair of shoulder injuries during his senior season, got off to a good start to rookie camp last month and has been up and down since then.

The Giants cut DT Dwayne Hendricks, a Millville native and former Miami Hurricane who signed as an undrafted free agent. That move could have been done to create room for Wright on the roster. Or maybe there's another signing (and cut) coming.
