Cowboys Ink First-Round CB Morris Claiborne

The Cowboys have come to terms with their first-round pick, as the club inked cornerback Morris Claiborne to a four-year deal Monday.

Reports say the deal is worth $16.26 million. No “offset” language is included in the contract, which has a fifth-year option.

The Cowboys’ official website later confirmed the deal and said Claiborne’s fully guaranteed contract includes a $10.3 million signing bonus.

Claiborne figures to start opposite big free-agent signing Brandon Carr, assuming that August goes as planned for the rookie. Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick will battle for the reserve spots.
