    Antoine Cason will be a Charger when the full squad practices for the first time tomorrow morning.

    The Chargers have agreed to terms on a five-year contract with their first-round draft pick. The former University of Arizona star will receive a little more than $6 million guaranteed and slightly more than $12 million over the life of the deal.

    Cason missed three days of workouts, which consisted almost exclusively of rookies. The Chargers and Cason's representatives expressed confidence throughout the negotiations that they would get a deal done before tomorrow.

    Cason spent the spring working out in coaching sessions at the Chargers facility and learning the defense. He will compete immediately with Paul Oliver and Cletis Gordon for the third cornerback spot. The likelihood is that Cason spends 2008 in defensive substitution packages and as a special teams contributor.

    Only 10 other first-round picks have signed throughout the league. Cason is the first pick between Nos. 19 and 29 to agree to terms.

    It's about time Cason and his agent caved in to AJs demands. I think he's going to be a solid nickel corner. Our secondary is going to be sick! :yes:
