It’s time to work on getting cornerback Morris Claiborne signed to a contract.

The Cowboys have cleared their plates of all other draft pick business with the announcement that the team has signed linebacker Kyle Wilber to a four-year deal. Wilber and fellow fourth-rounder Matt Johnson both signed at the end of this week, which means the team has all of their picks other than Claiborne under contract.

Wilber was one of four Cowboys draft picks whose participation was limited in this phase of the offseason. Johnson missed all but one day of minicamp because had to remain at school until the semester was over while Wilber, defensive end Tyrone Crawford and receiver Danny Coale all were sidelined by injury. Wilber broke a finger and is expected to be ready to go for the start of training camp.

The Wake Forest product will try to become Anthony Spencer’s backup and heir apparent at outside linebacker. He showed some of the same skills as Spencer while in college, although it would speed up his process to the field if he flashed a bit more pass rush ability. Barring that, his rookie year figures to be spent on special teams.
