Dolphins inside linebacker Channing Tindall has signed his rookie contract, the team announced Wednesday. Tindall’s agency, Universal Sports & Entertainment Management, had previously announced the two sides reached an agreement.

Under the rookie wage scale in the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, the total value of Tindall’s four-year contract will be about $5 million, including an $849,000 signing bonus, according to Spotrac.

Tindall, a third-round pick out of Georgia, was the Dolphins’ first selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, taken No. 102 overall. He spent his first three seasons in Georgia splitting time with a host of future NFL picks but broke out as a senior. Tindall recorded 67 tackles in the 2021 season, along with 7.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks, which ranked fourth on the team.

Tindall attended the team’s rookie minicamp two weeks ago and has been present at organized team activities, which began last week. Seventh-round picks Cameron Goode and Skylar Thompson signed their rookie deals ahead of rookie minicamp.

Fourth-round pick Erik Ezukanma is the team’s lone draft selection who has yet to agree to terms on his rookie contract, but he has been in attendance at OTAs.
