The New Orleans Saints aren’t wasting any time in getting their rookies signed.
The team announced Thursday it has signed four of its five draft picks, including first-round pick Kenny Vaccaro. Offensive tackle Terron Armstead, receiver Kenny Stills and linebacker Rufus Johnson also have signed.
Defensive tackle John Jenkins, a third-round pick, is the only remaining unsigned rookie. But getting him in the fold shouldn’t be a major problem.
The entire NFL appears to be adjusting to the format of the labor agreement reached in 2011, which imposes a strict rookie wage scale. Jenkins can only sign for what remains in the rookie pool.
