Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is reporting on Twitter that the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with defensive end Bruce Irvin, citing a league source.

Irvin is expected to receive a four-year contract that includes an option for a fifth-year. The sum of the contract should end up being close to last year’s total for the No. 15 overall pick, but will include a little more based on a fraction of the added money included in this year’s rookie pool. This also makes Irvin the first first-rounder from the 2012 Draft to officially sign with their team.

Seattle selected Irvin with the fifteenth overall pick, which came as a surprise to many, but General Manager John Schneider has insisted that he was the top defensive player on the Seahawks’ draft board. Furthermore, the New York Jets, who had the following pick after Seattle, were apparently interested in selecting Irvin.
