Cardinals, 1st-round pick Cooper, agree to 4-year, $14.5 million deal
GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Arizona Cardinals have reached a contract agreement with first-round draft pick Jonathan Cooper.
The four-year deal is worth about $14.5 million, the maximum slotted under the NFL collective bargaining agreement for Cooper as the seventh pick overall.
The 6-foot-2, 311-pound guard from North Carolina missed the first two days of training camp. He had worked out with the starting unit through the offseason.
The agreement leaves two first-round picks unsigned — cornerback Dee Milliner of the New York Jets (ninth pick overall) and guard Chance Warmack of the Tennessee Titans (10th).
