New England selected two Georgia players in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Approximately two months after it all went down, one of them has signed their rookie contract and one hasn't.

Offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn inked a four-year deal that's worth close to $11.5 million guaranteed over the weekend but running back Sony Michel hasn't yet agreed to terms with the Patriots. According to the Boston Herald, it's not something Michel is really even thinking about at this point.

The Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. native says that's why he has agents and other representation and his job is to play football.

“I’m sure it’s going to get taken care of, but that’s other people (that are) taking care of that,” Michel said per the Boston Herald. “My focus is just to make sure I’m in the best shape possible that I can be to get ready for camp.”

For the time being Michel and inside linebacker Roquan Smith, taken by Chicago with the No. 8 overall pick, are the only two Bulldogs who haven't signed their rookie contracts. Both also have the distinction of being the only unsigned players for their respective teams. Smith and Michel are included in a group of 16 first-round picks who have yet to sign.

Four other UGA players taken in the draft, Wynn, Nick Chubb (Cleveland), Lorenzo Carter (New York Giants), and Javon Wims (Chicago), have already secured four-year deals with their team.

According to, a site that tracks salaries of professional athletes, Michel is slotted to make just over $9.5 million over the course of his rookie contract. Because of the latest NFL collective bargaining agreement, there isn't much leeway when it comes to that figure. The negotiation usually surrounds the specific language within the contract when it comes to how the contract is structured -- guaranteed money, up-front money, etc.

Thus far in his young football career, Michel has shown the propensity to make good decisions. He had a chance to forego his final season of college ball, something most running backs do nowadays and enter the draft. It's unclear where he would have been taken but it almost certainly wouldn't have been in the first round.

His return to school netted him the best season of his college career. He carried the ball 156 times for 1,227 yards and 16 touchdowns. The 2018 Rose Bowl saw him score four total touchdowns, including the game-winner from 27 yards out, and rush for 181 yards on 11 carries. Offensive MVP was his reward for that performance. He led the SEC in yards per carry at 7.87 and was named a permanent team captain.

In his final year at UGA, Michel was arguably Georgia's most vocal leader and helped the program win its first SEC Championship since 2005 and make its first-ever College Football Playoff run.
