Three Miami Dolphins rookies — safety Jevon Holland, offensive lineman Liam Eichenberg and tight end Hunter Long — remain unsigned with players set to report to training camp on Tuesday.

NFL rookie contracts are already structured to a wage scale based on where players were selected in the past NFL draft. It’s just a matter of getting the contracts signed, which is likely to happen by Tuesday so the rookies can begin participating in their first professional training camp.

The trio of Dolphins Day 2 draft picks took part in organized team activities and minicamp earlier in the offseason under waivers signed to protect them if they’re injured.

As a second-round pick, No. 36 overall, Holland is expected to sign a four-year deal worth $8,716,409, which includes a $3,699,207 signing bonus.

Eichenberg, who was taken later in the second round with the No. 42 pick, should sign a four-year deal worth $8,014,479, which includes a signing bonus of $3,188,712.

Long, the Dolphins’ third-round pick, is slotted to earn $4,968,706 over the course of his four-year deal. He could earn more due to playing time escalators, which third- through seventh-round picks are eligible for, unlike first- and second-round selections. Long will receive a signing bonus worth $973,604.

Miami’s first-round picks, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle and defensive end Jaelan Phillips, are signed, as well as seventh-round selections in offensive lineman Larnel Coleman and running back Gerrid Doaks.
