Well, that was painless. Within 10 days of the draft, the Ravens have locked up the whole draft class!

The base salaries are: $435,000 in 2015, $793,255 in 2016, $1.151 million in 2017, and $1.509 million in 2018.
Perriman was the last of the Ravens draft picks to sign a deal. The new collective bargaining agreement in 2011 has made it virtually painless to sign draft picks, which is a huge perk for the teams and the league. Still, Perriman was faster to sign with the team than other recent 1st rounders, beating C.J. Mosley by 16 days (May 27) and Matt Elam by a 5 weeks (July 18), although Elam negotiated his own contract.
Perriman looked very good in his first camp this past weekend, with only 1 drop. He should serve as the immediate deep threat for the revamped Ravens offense.
