The Seattle Seahawks wasted little time getting first round draft choice Bruce Irvin in the fold.
First reported by ProFootballTalk.com, the team confirmed that Irvin agreed to contract terms today, becoming the first player from the first round of this year’s draft class to agree with a team.
Irvin also confirmed the agreement via twitter.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. But according to Andrew Brandt of the National Football Post, Irvin will sign a four-year deal worth $9.34 million fully guaranteed, which includes a signing bonus worth over $5 million.
Never miss a local story.
Brian McIntyre, cap analyst for Football Outsiders, reports that Irvin’s salary will count for about $1.7 million against this year’s salary cap for Seattle.
Irvin will be part of Seattle’s rookie camp that begins on Friday.
