Dez Bryant agrees to contract

From Rotoworld.com (updated with contract numbers)

Cowboys signed No. 24 overall pick WR Dez Bryant to a five-year, $11.8 million contract, including $8.3 guaranteed.

Last year's 24th pick, Peria Jerry, received $7.55M guaranteed. So much for the concern about agent Eugene Parker's history and speculation that Bryant would be holding out for Top-10 money. The former Oklahoma State star becomes the first of the first-round picks to sign, just in time for the Cowboys to begin training camp this weekend. Bryant made a strong first impression in OTAs, and his early signing will only help to ensure that he'll be pushed into a big role as a rookie. Roy Williams is on notice this summer.

Great news. Dez can use all the reps he can get, and will do well not to miss a moment of training camp. I figured he might miss a day or two, probably not longer, but it's somewhat surprising that they actually got it done a bit ahead of time this time, especially with the uncertainty of being the first 1st-round signing with no market set to negotiate from.

Also expect Sean Lee to be signed by tomorrow.
