The former Ohio State wide receiver agreed to terms with the New Orleans Saints on Friday on a fully guaranteed four-year contract worth $19,271,874, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Olave, who was selected by the Saints with the No. 11 overall pick in this year’s NFL draft and is going through rookie minicamp with the team this weekend (where he’s wearing No. 12), becomes the third member of this year’s Ohio State draft class to officially sign with his new team.

Seventh-round pick Thayer Munford signed his contract with the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday. His contract is worth $3,757,060 over four years with a $97,060 signing bonus, per Spotrac.
