The Cowboys have agreed to shell out money to their first-round pick Taco Charlton.

According to multiple reports, the Cowboys and Charlton have settled on a contract ahead of the start of the team’s rookie minicamp. Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that it is the first time that the Cowboys have had a pick signed ahead of the camp in the Jerry Jones era.

Charlton’s deal is for four years and the Cowboys will hold onto an option for a fifth year that must be exercised ahead of the 2020 season.

Charlton had 9.5 sacks for Michigan last season and the Cowboys hope that he’ll provide that kind of pressure off the edge at the professional level as well. The Cowboys have eight other picks to sign, six of whom join Charlton on the defensive side of the ball.

UPDATE 5/13 6:50 a.m. ET: Troy Aikman signed with the Cowboys before the 1989 Draft, which was obviously also before any rookie minicamp.

  1. Hope Taco Bell steps up like in the World Series when they give Free Tacos to America for a stolen base. Now for every Taco sack, Free Tacos for America.
    * Limit one per customer, maximum 1 Taco per game , No Purchase Necessary. This Promotion is open to residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia only. Void in all other territories, possessions, and commonwealths, and all other countries. Void where prohibited. Gotta admit it would be perfect endorsement. The lamp guy signed with Lamps Plus, plus he got drafted by a team who’s logo is the symbol for electricity. I mean c’mon this stuff writes itself.

  2. Things are looking great in Dallas. Drafted very well. Offense is well intact. As long as we have our big triplets (Smith, Martin and Fredrick) , you can throw any lineman in there and they will look like a pro bowler. All the sudden our defense looks awesome. Things are looking bright.

    Tenth best pass rusher in the draft. Impressive.

    Well at least you didnt draft Williams or Watt.

  4. @steelcurtainn. You still butt hurt from Zeke splitting your defense? Troll much? You and your whack team and coach can relive that moment over and over. Get a life. Oh.. my bad, life don’t exist in your sorry State. You probably are a Sandusky fan too. Go pick your hiney.

  5. It is wonderful, when a team can sign a player that does not come with baggage and another that actually graduates from college. Generally, these type of players go on to good careers. Athletes, that come out of college, drug addicts are usually drug addicts the rest of their lives. Trust me on this: Once an Alcoholic and/or Drug Addict, one’s life is always shortened by a minimum of 10 years. As for careers and life goals included. Best of Luck to all.
