Baltimore Ravens linebacker David Ojabo has finally signed his rookie contract.

Until tonight, the former Michigan player was the only 2022 NFL Draft pick yet to sign his initial contract.

The team announced the signing on Tuesday evening.

The NFL world took to Twitter to react to this contract news.

“Yall was so worried about what,” a fan wrote.

“The stalemate is over,” another added.

Monetary details of the contract have yet to be released, but as the No. 45 overall pick in the 2022 draft, Ojabo is expected to receive a four-year deal worth around $7.9 million. The delays with signing the rookie were caused by negotiations over the amount of guaranteed money.

Ojabo was selected with a second-round pick after suffering a torn Achilles during his Michigan Pro Day in March. He had 11 sacks and five forced fumbles in 14 games for Wolverines in 2021 and was once considered a first-round talent.

The injured rookie recovered away from the squad as he negotiated contract details. Now that his deal is in place, he will be able to join his team at their training camp facilities.

With Ojabo’s deal now on the books, all 262 picks in the 2022 draft class have signed their rookie contracts.
