Wednesday afternoon, the Chicago Bears announced that the team has come to a contract agreement with second overall pick Mitchell Trubisky, ensuring that the quarterback out of North Carolina will be on the field when the team begins training camp next Wednesday. Trubisky was on hand and signed his contract.

The terms of Trubisky's contract mostly were predetermined by the NFL's rookie wage scale, which has been in place since 2011.

The deal comes just a week before the start of training camp, allowing Trubisky to stay on schedule with the rest of the team throughout the summer and leading up to the beginning of the 2017 season. Mariota, who, like Trubisky, was drafted second overall and is represented by Rep1 Sports, had no offset language associated with his roster and signing bonuses but did have it attached to his smaller annual base salaries.

Consider Sam Bradford's contract after the Rams drafted the Oklahoma quarterback first overall in 2010: $50 million guaranteed as part of a six-year, $78 million deal.

All first-round picks have fifth-year contract options included in their initial National Football League contract.

Salary figures are fairly standardized for rookie deals.

Neither Trubisky nor the Bears seemed particularly concerned that the two sides would eventually get a deal done, citing respect between his agents and the team's front office.

"I'm very excited, just getting back to playing the game I love and being out there with these guys and continue to create great chemistry and a new winning culture here in Chicago". I'm going to be ready to go for training camp.

The Bears tweeted a photo of Trubisky signing his contract as rookies prepare to report for training camp.
