The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms with their first-round draft pick offensive lineman Jonathan Cooper, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.
Cooper, the seventh-overall pick, will receive a contract worth $14.5 million, including a $10 million signing. The contract contains offset language, a point of contention between the Cardinals and Cooper’s agent, Todd France.
Offset language protects the team financially if Cooper was released and picked up by another team.
“I’m happier right now,” coach Bruce Arians said. “We’re excited to have him in and watch him run the conditioning test in front of the whole team.”
