Pittsburgh Steelers sign LB Timmons to five-year deal
Timmons was taken two spots after the Rams selected Carriker, so his contract figures should give us at least some idea of what it might take to get Adam under contract.
Steelers, Timmons agree to five-year deal

The Steelers will have all of their rookies in training camp tomorrow after coming to a five-year contract agreement with first-round draft choice Lawrence Timmons this afternoon.
Timmons signed a five-year contract that is worth slightly less than $12 million in base pay and up to $15 million, including incentives. He will receive various guaranteed bonuses of $8,053,000 that includes signing and roster bonuses.
"We think it was very important to get Lawrence signed on time to give him an opportunity to reach his immense potential," said his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. "Obviously, Mike Tomlin's in his first training camp and Lawrence is his first draft pick as head coach and we wanted him to be there. He's off to a great start."

I have also heard that Miami is close to signing Ted Ginn who was picked a few spots earlier, so when that happens that could give us some more of an idea. Hopefully this will all lead to Carriker being signed sooner rather than later.
