Morris Claiborne, Cowboys Strike A Deal

Rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne has signed a four-year, $16.26 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. The deal contains no offset language, meaning Claiborne will be paid the full amount of his contract even if the Cowboys don't pick up his team option for a fifth season. With Claiborne locked in with Dallas, only seven first round picks from the 2012 NFL Draft remain unsigned as training camps get underway.

Claiborne was selected with the No. 6 overall pick in April. He was a unanimous All-American selection during his junior season with the LSU Tigers. He also won the Jim Thorpe award given out each season to the best defensive back in college football.
