Eight down, one to go.
The team signed second-rounder Eddie Royal to a contract this morning, leaving only first-rounder Ryan Clady left to sign before training camp begins tomorrow morning.
Royal has impressed his coaches and his quarterback during minicamp, working his way into the receiver rotation, but he should also make an immediate impact in the return game.
He left his mark on his alma mater of Virginia Tech by re-writing the record books. Over the course of his four years in Blacksburg, he became the Hokies all-time leader in all-purpose yards with 4,686, a total that includes an ACC-record 1,296 punt return yards along with 1,386 kickoff return yards.
He accounted for 17 total scores — catching 12, returning punts for three, rushing for one and even throwing one as well.
