Derick Hall, a former Auburn standout and 2nd round draft pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, signed his rookie NFL contract Tuesday, one that includes some unusual features.

The Seahawks and Hall agreed to a 4-year (which is standard) contract worth $9.116 million. This includes a signing bonus of $3.63 million.

That signing bonus is where some of the oddities lie. He is guaranteed to receive at least 85% of his signing bonus before reporting to training camp, a rate usually offered to high first-round picks only.

He is also guaranteed 7.22 million from the contract into his final season, another oddity for a 2nd rounder.

This indicates the Seahawks are very high on Hall, who was an all-SEC caliber player his final year with the Tigers.

Hall spent 4 years at Auburn and a starter for 3 years starting in 2020. Across his 4 years with the Tigers, Hall totaled 167 tackles, 29 tackles for loss, 19 sacks, 5 forced fumbles and 1 interception.
