    IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a four-year deal with first-round pick Morris Claiborne for $16.26 million, sources said Monday.

    The cornerback is en route to Dallas and will be able to practice Wednesday at Valley Ranch when pre-training camp workouts begin.

    The monetary value of the deal, which includes a signing bonus of $10.27 million, had been in place for weeks, but the offset language had been a sticking point for almost all of the top picks in the first round. According to sources, the deal contains no offset language.

    Cleared medically, Claiborne will practice Wednesday when rookies, first-year players, quarterbacks and selective veterans report for camp. The first full-squad workout in Oxnard, Calif., takes place July 30.
