Jets, Darron Lee agree to terms.

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016 will go down as a great day for former Buckeyes in the NFL.

After Kurt Coleman agreed to a three-year extension with the Carolina Panthers and Nick Mangold earned a league-leading $2.4 million bonus by showing up to his 11th New York Jets camp, the Jets also agreed to terms with 2016 first-round pick Darron Lee.

The Jets, who opened camp Wednesday in Florham Park, New Jersey, selected Lee with the 20th overall pick in April's NFL Draft. Though terms of the deal aren't public yet, Lee's contract is projected to be worth $10,221,648, with a $5,633,926 signing bonus.

Lee seems ready to get down to business:

The only remaining Buckeye draftee that remains unsigned is Joey Bosa, whom the San Diego Chargers selected with the third overall pick. Unlike Bosa, Lee chose not to skip any of his team's offseason organized team activities.
