Dolphins sign Laremy Tunsil
The Miami Dolphins have signed first-round pick Laremy Tunsil, the team announced Friday.
The Dolphins selected Tunsil out of Ole Miss with the No. 13 overall pick during April’s draft. Tunsil’s contract is for four seasons, reports Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Tunsil became the story of draft night when he slid in the first round after a video of him taking a bong hit through a gas mask was posted to his Twitter account minutes before the start of the first round. The Ravens were reportedly interested in selecting Tunsil with the No. 6 pick, but passed because of the video.
The drop from No. 6 to No. 13 is expected to cost Tunsil nearly $7 million on his first contract. Tunsil’s contract will not include any unique clauses in light of the video, reports ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Tunsil is currently projected to start at left guard for the Dolphins, reports the Herald.
