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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
