Cowboys, Claiborne: 4 years, $16.4M

The Dallas Cowboys have signed first-round draft pick Morris
Claiborne to a four-year contract.

Claiborne signed the deal Monday, and the cornerback will be
able to practice when rookies and selected veterans have three days
of workouts at Valley Ranch starting Wednesday before the full
training camp in California.

While the Cowboys didn’t release contract details, a story on
the team’s website said the deal was worth $16.4 million, including
a $10.3 million signing bonus.

Dallas traded up eight spots and lost its second-round draft
pick in April to get Claiborne, the All-America cornerback from

Claiborne, expected to start opposite Brandon Carr, missed
offseason workouts because of surgery before the draft to repair
ligament damage in his left wrist.
