The Detroit Lions will have all of their rookies report to training camp on time. There was some uncertainty surrounding if this would actually happen with first-round pick Riley Reiff still without a contract over the weekend, but he signed with the Lions early on Monday morning. He was the final draft pick in need of a deal for the Lions' 2012 class, and now he has one.

Reiff, along with the Lions' other rookies (and injured players), is scheduled to report to Allen Park for training camp on Monday. Veterans will be in town to officially report on Thursday, and the first practice is expected to take place on Friday.
Reiff's deal is for four years with a team option for a fifth year. Contract numbers beyond that are currently unavailable.
