Arizona Cardinals agree to terms with first round pick Jonathan Cooper

USA TODAY Sports

The holdout is over and the Cards have everyone in camp.

It took a few days longer than it should have, but the Arizona Cardinals have officially announced that they have agreed to terms with first round draft pick Jonathan Cooper to his four-year rookie contract.

According to Adam Schefter, the deal is for $14.55 million dollars over the four seasons and is completely guaranteed, yet includes the offset language that has been a sticking point with some of the rookie contracts.

Pro Football Talk is reporting that he will get the entire sum of his signing bonus by October, being paid $3.4 million within the next 10 days, $3 million on September 15 and $2.56 million on October 15. That adds up to just under $9 million of the over $14 million in the next three months. Not a bad deal. Don't spend it all in one place.

Cooper will now join the team and begin camp. He will have to pass his physical and run the conditioning test in front of the team, as head coach Bruce Arians stated on Sunday. It will probably be Monday when he begins drills.
