It turns out the 2017 NFL draft will be a good one for the Dallas Cowboys: they have now officially signed each of nine of their draft picks. The team has announced they inked third-round selection Jourdan Lewis to a four-year rookie deal.
This means that Dallas decided to have faith in him, despite a pending domestic violence charge against the 21-year-old. The former University of Michigan CB hinted that something big was about to happen, before finally confirming the news on his Twitter account:
We reported a few weeks ago that Lewis was charged following an incident that apparently occurred in March. He is accused of "grabbing his girlfriend by the neck and dragging her across the floor at the apartment they shared" in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He is set to appear in court on July 10.
Lewis won the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year in 2016, an award attributed by coaches and media of the Big Ten Conference at the end of each season.
