Cowboys Sign First-Round DE Taco Charlton

The Dallas Cowboys have signed first-round DE Taco Charlton to a four-year rookie contract, according to Todd Archer.

Charlton becomes the first player from the Cowboys’ 2017 draft class to sign his rookie deal. It would not be surprising to see more signings from Dallas in the coming days.

According to OverTheCap.com, Charlton will receive a four-year contract worth $10,028,638, which includes a signing bonus of $5,433,556. The contract also has a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2020.

Charlton, 22, was selected with the No. 28 overall pick by the Cowboys. The Cowboys were clearly in need of a defensive end and Charlton should give them someone to build around in the coming years.

During his four-year college career at Michigan, White recorded 91 total tackles, 28 tackles for loss, 19 sacks, two pass defenses, and one forced fumble in 33 games for the Wolverines.
