Following the 2022 NFL Draft, the Jets will now work on contracts for their drafted players.

Here's the latest on who has signed and what their terms will be on their rookie deals...

May 16, 7:00 p.m.

Jermaine Johnson, the 26th overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, has signed his rookie deal with Gang Green, the team announced on Monday.

The deal is worth $13.1 million over four seasons with a $6.7 million signing bonus, according to SNY NFL insider Ralph Vacchiano.

Johnson was the third first-rounder the Jets selected when they traded up to snag him. Now, all that remains is signing Garrett Wilson, the wide receiver who was selected 10th overall.

May 7, 4:45 p.m.

The Jets announced that first-round pick Sauce Gardner has signed his rookie deal, becoming the first member of the team's draft class to do so.

Vacchiano reports that the deal is a fully guaranteed four-year deal (with a fifth-year option) worth $33.4 million, including a $21.5 million signing bonus.

Gardner's signing is the earliest by any Jets first-rounder in the last 40 years. He narrowly beat out Leonard Williams, who signed his rookie deal on May 8, 2015.
