Lane Johnson officially became an Eagle after signing a four-year deal with the team on Saturday night. The 4th overall pick did not want offset language in his deal, but after 3rd overall pick Dion Jordan settled on it, Johnson had little choice. As a result, Johnson’s contract will not be fully guaranteed in the unlikely event that the Eagles cut him after the 2015 season.

In exchange for the inclusion of offset language, the Eagles agreed to pony up Johnson’s entire $12.8 million signing bonus up front. The total potential worth of the contract is $19.853 million over four seasons.

All 30 rookies and selected veterans who are expected to report to training camp on Monday are now under contract. No holdouts or other major contract disputes are looming on the horizon, so Chip Kelly should be thankful for a relatively distraction-free camp where all his players can focus solely on football.
