The deadline has passed for NFL teams to make a decision on their 2012 draft class. The rookie wage scale created in 2011 requires that all first-year players sign four-year deals. For players taken in the first round, the club has the option to extend the contract for one extra season. The fifth year is guaranteed for injury when the option is used.
The fifth-year salary varies depending on how high the player was drafted. The top 10 selections receive a salary equal to the average of the 10 highest salaries. For the remainder of the first round, the wage is the average of the third through twenty-fifth highest salaries at the position.
