Cardinals signed No. 29 overall pick DT Robert Nkemdiche to a four-year contract.

Fifth-round picks Marqui Christian and Cole Toner also signed on Friday. Nkemdiche endured a slew of off-field incidents while attending Ole Miss, but he could end up being a valuable pass-rushing presence for Arizona if he can walk the straight and narrow.

Steelers signed No. 220 overall pick OLB Travis Feeney to a four-year contract.

The Steelers have now locked up three of their seven draft picks. Feeney's best chance at playing time this year will probably come on special teams.
May 6 - 3:42 PM

Cowboys released RB Ben Malena.

The Cowboys let him go to make room for their rookie class. Malena was among the Cowboys' last training camp cuts in 2015 but joined the team later as a practice squad player. He's never played an NFL snap.
May 6 - 3:38 PM

Chiefs signed No. 105 overall pick OG Parker Ehinger to a four-year contract.

Kansas City also reached terms with fourth-round WR Demarcus Robinson on Friday. Ehinger will likely open his career at guard after playing three different positions as a four-year starter for Cincinnati.
May 6 - 3:19 PM

Chiefs signed No. 74 overall pick CB KeiVarae Russell to a four-year contract.

He signed just in time for the Chiefs' three-day rookie minicamp, which opens on Saturday. Russell was the 12th cornerback selected in last week's draft. He'll open the year behind starters Marcus Peters and Phillip Gaines.
May 6 - 3:13 PM

49ers waived QB Dylan Thompson.

He became expendable when the Niners selected Louisiana Tech QB Jeff Driskel in the sixth round of last week's draft. Thompson was promoted to the active roster late last season but never saw the field.
May 6 - 3:04 PM

49ers waived RB Kendall Gaskins.

The Niners cut Gaskins, Corey Acosta, Jordan Devey and Dylan Thompson Friday to make room for their rookie class. Gaskins appeared in nine games last season, rushing 16 times for 38 yards. Carlos Hyde, who missed the final nine games with a stress fracture, will open 2016 as the Niners' bellcow.
May 6 - 3:01 PM

Giants signed No. 184 overall pick TE Jerell Adams to a four-year, $2.5 million contract.

That comes with a $143,000 signing bonus. He'll open camp as the Giants' No. 3 tight end behind Larry Donnell and Will Tye.
May 6 - 2:41 PM

Giants signed No. 40 overall pick WR Sterling Shepard to a four-year, $5.9 million contract.

B.J. Goodson and Darian Thompson are the only picks the Giants haven't signed yet. Shepard's deal comes with a $2.5 million signing bonus. He totaled 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns while leading Oklahoma to a Big 12 title in 2015.
May 6 - 2:38 PM

Lions signed No. 16 overall pick OT Taylor Decker to a four-year contract.

The Lions have now signed all their draft picks except second-round DT A'Shawn Robinson. Decker will open 2016 as the Lions' starting right tackle.
May 6 - 2:30 PM

Chiefs waived OLB Tautyvdas Kieras.

The Chiefs signed him after an impressive showing at Mississippi State's Pro Day in March. Instead of playing football, Kieras competed as a discus and shot put thrower in college. He'll catch on as a camp body somewhere else.
May 6 - 2:21 PM

49ers signed No. 7 overall pick DE DeForest Buckner to a four-year contract.

Per the NFL's rookie wage scale, the contract will be worth around $18.2 million with an $11.4 million signing bonus. Bucker was a first-team All-American at Oregon last year and was the second defensive lineman selected on draft night after Joey Bosa, who went to San Diego with the third overall pick.
May 6 - 1:59 PM

Lions signed No. 111 overall pick S Miles Killebrew to a four-year contract.

The Lions reportedly "tested" Killebrew by telling him they weren't interested at the Senior Bowl, only to draft him in the fourth round three months later. He was a first-team All-Big Sky selection in his senior year at Southern Utah.
May 6 - 1:52 PM

Seahawks signed No. 31 overall pick G Germain Ifedi to a four-year, $8.2 million contract.

That comes with a $4.2 million signing bonus and a team option for 2020. Ifedi is expected to compete with Justin Britt, Mark Glowinski and Rees Odhiambo for one of the Seahawks' two guard positions this year.
May 6 - 1:45 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said fourth-round QB Cardale Jones has a "long way to go."

The Bills were always in on Jones, as CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora said they were "enamored" with him during the draft process. The team hasn't shown Tyrod Taylor much of a commitment while backup E.J. Manuel will be out the door when his rookie deal expires after this season. That leaves Jones in a pretty favorable position, though Ryan correctly views him as a project. Jones has overwhelming arm strength and runs well for his size. His upside is huge but it would probably serve him well to spend a year learning from Taylor.
