    <img align="left" alt="Antonio Cromartie" id="image2439" title="Antonio Cromartie" src="http://bolttalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/07/CromartieSm.jpg" />Completing a two-day stretch of breakneck negotiations, the San Diego Chargers on Tuesday evening reached agreement with first-round draft choice Antonio Cromartie, a cornerback from Florida State, on his first NFL contract.

    The agreement means that the Chargers, whose rookies reported for work Monday, have accords with all eight of their 2006 selections. All eight deals were struck over the past two days. The team does not officially begin full-squad training camp practices until later in the week, but San Diego still has had just one first-rounder in camp on time since 2001.

    The 19th overall selection, Cromartie will sign a five-year contract, the maximum term permitted by the extension to the collective bargaining agreement for a player chosen in the bottom half of the first round. The contract can be worth as much as $12.75 million and includes $7.35 million in guarantees.</blockquote>
