Damon Arnette is now a millionaire. 

With the NFL's unprecedented offseason winding down and the 2020 season on the horizon, rookies who were drafted just three months ago are putting the finishing touches on their rookie contracts.

On Saturday afternoon, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport tweeted that Arnette signed a sizeable contract with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Arnette was selected at 19th overall in last April's NFL draft, making him the seventh former Ohio State defensive back to be taken in the first round since 2014. Those seven players (Bradley Roby, Eli Apple, Marshon Lattimore, Malik Hooker, Denzel Ward, Jeff Okudah and Arnette) make up over 40 percent of the 17 former Buckeyes who were first round picks during that time span.
