Dallas Cowboys and Cornerback Morris Claiborne Agree to 4-year Deal
The Dallas Cowboys have come to terms with first-round pick cornerback Morris Claiborne to a four-year contract worth around $16.5 million.
The contract if fully guaranteed and includes a $10.3 million signing bonus. There is also an option for a fifth season.
Claiborne didn’t participate in any practices during the Cowboys’ off-season while recovering from left wrist surgery. However; Claiborne has been cleared to return to practice and is expected to work out on Wednesday, the first of three consecutive days of training camp practices for rookies, quarterbacks and injured players.
With Claiborne now in the fold the Cowboys have all of their draft picks under contract.
Claiborne is expected to start right away on the right side, opposite free-agent addition Brandon Carr, who will man the left cornerback spot. The Cowboys also have Orlando Scandrick and Mike Jenkins, who hasn’t practiced this summer because of shoulder surgery he underwent after last season ended.
