Aidan Hutchinson, a rookie for the Detroit Lions, has agreed to terms on a four-year rookie contract. Mike McCartney, Hutchinson’s agent, was the first to reveal the information.
Hutchinson was asked if it had hit him that he was picked by his hometown team during his debut press conference with Detroit media.
Hutchinson signed a four-year, fully guaranteed deal worth $35,713,38 with a $23,153,372 signing bonus.
“Not quite, I’m still waiting on it. I think it’s still going to be a couple of days. I was just walking around the building today with my family, and it’s just weird. Growing up, I was a Michigan guy. I’m around Detroit sports so much. To think that I’m a Lion is just — it seems like a wild dream to me,” he said. “It’s kind of coming through. It’s wild, but I’m soaking it all in. I’m sure one of these days it’s going to hit me for sure.”
The second overall pick is now prepared to take part in rookie minicamp that is set to begin later this week at the team’s Allen Park practice facility.
