    Cowboys, Bryant agree on deal...

    By Calvin Watkins
    ESPNDallas.com

    The Cowboys announced they agreed to terms with first-round pick Dez Bryant on Thursday.
    Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Bryant, the 24th pick of the draft, is expected to report on time for Cowboys training camp on Saturday in San Antonio.
    Bryant, who was unavailable for comment, becomes the first first-round pick to agree to a contract, even beating out St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, who was the No. 1 pick of the draft. Bradford, who played college ball at Oklahoma, is expected to get the largest contract in league history for a rookie.
    The Bryant deal is a relief for the Cowboys because there was speculation he would not make it into camp on time.
    Eugene Parker, Bryant's agent, had worked deals with previous first-round selections Mike Jenkins and Felix Jones, who reported a few days late to camp.
    But Parker understood how important it was for his client to get in on time. Bryant even said over the summer he expected to report to camp when it started.
    The only draft pick unsigned by the Cowboys is second-rounder Sean Lee from Penn State
    Bryant's five-year deal could be worth roughly $12 million total and includes more than $8.5 million in guaranteed money, NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported, citing a league source.

    Somebody signed YEAH... can't wait for Mathews to sign... :yes:

    Patriots sign first-round cornerback McCourty

    By Mike Reiss
    ESPNBoston.com

    The New England Patriots signed first-round draft choice Devin McCourty on a five-year contract, his agent Andy Simms said.
    The deal has a maximum value of $13.2 million, according to a league source. The guarantees and bonuses total $7.825 million.
    McCourty, a cornerback from Rutgers, was the 27th overall selection in the draft. He was the last of the Patriots' 12 draft choices without a contract. With the Patriots holding their first training camp practice Thursday, McCourty should be on the field with his new teammates.
    McCourty is the second first-round draft choice to agree to a contract; Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant (24th overall) is the other.
    In selecting McCourty, Patriots coach Bill Belichick cited his four-down impact, meaning that he could contribute both on defense and special teams.
    "He's fast, he's tough. He's a good four-down football player -- first, second, third and fourth down," Belichick said on draft day. "In the kicking game, he's certainly one of the top guys in the draft in that area."
    In addition to contributing on special teams, McCourty is projected to compete for a starting job at left cornerback with 2009 second-round draft choice Darius Butler.

    Rolando McClain gets the first big-money rookie deal of the year

    Posted by Mike Florio on July 29, 2010 10:56 AM ET


    As a sleepless MDS pointed out in the wee hours of the morning (I should send him a copy of Quarterback of the Future, which will cure his insomnia far more quickly than monitoring the Raiders' official website for announcements), the first top-ten pick of the 2010 draft class has agreed to terms.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN reports from his Partridge Family training camp tour bus, which Jay Glazer has yet to deface, that Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain, the eighth overall selection in the draft, will receive $23 million guaranteed on a five-year, $40 million deal.

    That's $8 million per year for a middle linebacker who has never participated in an official NFL practice. Paid at a time when many teams are refusing to pay that kind of money to proven players.

    As to the $23 million guaranteed, we'll believe it's guaranteed when we see that it's guaranteed. All too often of late, reports have emerged of huge guaranteed amounts (e.g., Brandon Marshall, D'Brickashaw Ferguson) that ended up being one-year deals with team options for the rest.

    That said, when it comes to top-ten rookie deals, the guaranteed amounts that are reported in the media usually are accurate. And, if the report regarding McClain isn't accurate, don't be surprised if the Raiders eventually put the word out that the numbers are wrong, as they once tried to do after signing receiver Javon Walker. (As it turns out, the Raiders' effort to point out the erroneous nature of the reports on Walker's deal ended up being, well, erroneous.)

    The McClain deal as reported contains $4 million more in guaranteed money than the No. 8 pick in 2009, Jaguars tackle Eugene Monroe, received. Per NFLPA records (as communicated to us by two separate sources), McClain received $19 million in guaranteed money.

    Still, the devil on these deals dwells deeply in the details. For example, the one-time incentive bonus based on minimum playing time often isn't truly guaranteed, and if the guy for whatever reason doesn't meet the threshold (35 percent in the first year, 45 percent thereafter), he doesn't get the money. Tight end Kellen Winslow, for example, never received one-timer money that typically is included in the calculation of guaranteed cash.

    In this case, it's possible that Monroe's guarantee as reported didn't include the one-timer, and that McClain's does. We're in the process of tracking down those details, and we'll sift through them for you, if our adult ADD doesn't kick in first.

    [Editor's note: A prior version of this article reflected guaranteed money for Monroe of $25 million, based on multiple reports published at the time the deal was done. This dynamic further illustrates the often inaccurate or incomplete information that is disseminated when first-round contracts are signed. The agents have a strong incentive to overstate the value of the deals, since they believe this will help them in recruiting future clients.]

    Tebow signs 5-year deal


    ESPN.com news services


    Tim Tebow is a signed, sealed and delivered member of the Denver Broncos.

    Tebow, the 25th-overall selection in April's draft, signed a five-year, $33 million contract with $8.7 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    Tebow's deal is an 18.5 percent increase over the contract last year's No. 25 pick, Miami Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis, signed.

    usually alot of early round draft picks only get signed at the very start to training camp. But this year there does seem to be quite a few more unsigned early rounders still not signed.

    "Niners gave first-round pick Anthony Davis a 5-year, $26.5 million contract that includes $15.954 million guaranteed."

    No idea what Graham got
