The New England Patriots entered the week with all but three members of their 10-player draft class signed to their respective rookie deals.

He shared a photo on social media on Thursday that shows him in the process of signing what appears to be his rookie deal.

The Patriots have not made an announcement of the signing yet, though, and it remains to be seen how quickly the move will be processed.After all, New England will need to create additional salary cap space before being able to sign any of their three as-of-yet-unaccounted-for rookies.

For comparison, Strange and Zappe would cost $1.26 million and $161, 768, respectively.
