Lions sign Jahvid Best to 5-year deal
ALLEN PARK -- Now that the Lions have agreed to a five-year deal with running back Jahvid Best, the 30th overall pick, they just have one more first-round pick left to sign.
A deal was announced with Best shortly after the 6 p.m. deadline for players to report for training camp which opens on Saturday.
NFL players usually are slotted according to draft order. Best was a good possibility to get into camp on time because the 27th, 28th and 32nd picks have been signed.
It's likely Ndamukong Suh, the second overall pick, will not be signed until the St. Louis Rams agree to a deal with Sam Bradford, the top pick.
