Ravens get third-round pick Bronson Kaufusi under contract

Now signed, rookie Bronson Kaufusi's next order of business will be getting healthy.

Ravens third-round pick Bronson Kaufusi is not expected to participate in this week's mandatory minicamp because of a back injury. But the former Brigham Young standout has one less thing to worry about as he continues to work his way back to the field. 

The Ravens announced Tuesday they've agreed to terms with Kaufusi. The deal means that all 11 of the team's 2016 draft picks are now under contract. 

Kaufusi's deal took a little longer to come together because third-round picks have more room for negotiating than other round selections in the current slotting system.

Kaufusi is expected to compete with Brent Urban and others for the starting defensive end job. The Ravens also could use him on the outside.

But Kaufusi's first order of business is getting healthy.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said last week he expects the rookie to be ready for the start of training camp in late July.
