The Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement with first rounder Morris Claiborne, officially bringing the sixth overall selection in last April’s draft into the fold in Dallas, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Per the deal, Claiborne is set to earn $16.26 million over the next four years, all guaranteed. The issue of offset language, which was reportedly responsible for the deal being held up as long as it was, was apparently settled in the favor of Claiborne’s camp--that is, there is no offset language, meaning Dallas is on the hook for the stated figure whether or not they resign Claiborne after his rookie deal is up.
Claiborne is the last of the Cowboys’ seven draft picks to sign. His deal leaves just seven first round picks without deals, though there will surely be a flood of first rounders inking deals as we draw closer to training camps opening.
As for Dallas, the team will have a three-day mini-camp for rookies and select veterans this week at Valley Ranch before heading to Oxnard, Ca., to open training camp proper next Monday. Even before the news today, Claiborne insisted that he would report to camp with no issue.
