NFC North rookie signings -- activate!

We're officially into draft-pick signing season, a time of year that rivals Christmas and the graduation for an off-the-charts level of pure joy. In the past 24 hours, NFC North contract negotiators have knocked out nearly eight percent of the division's 2010 draft class. That's two of 26, for those keeping tracking at home.

Indeed, we'll periodically publish a running update of these signings to help answer one of the more consistent questions I get at this time of year. One tip: Watch out for the Chicago Bears; last year, they were the first team in the entire league to sign their complete draft class.
