    Ellis should follow soon then. I'm sure he was waiting for Dorsey's contract before signing. I'm just glad the Falcons got all their picks signed.

    Dorsey signs 5 year deal, option for 6th year

    Glenn Dorsey:

    Chiefs, first-round pick Dorsey agree to contract terms, source says

    RIVER FALLS, Wis. -- First-round draft pick Glenn Dorsey has agreed to contract terms with the Kansas City Chiefs and was expected at Saturday afternoon's practice, The Associated Press has learned.

    Dorsey, the fifth overall choice in the 2008 draft, agreed to a five-year deal with an option for a sixth year, Chiefs president Carl Peterson said on Saturday.

    A person who requested anonymity because terms of the deal had not been announced said it included a guarantee of about $22 million.

    Peterson said the deal was hastened by the signing the day before of Vernon Gholston, who was drafted right behind Dorsey by the New York Jets.

    The Chiefs have agreed to terms with 11 of their 12 draft picks. Still unsigned is tight end Michael Merritt, a seventh-round selection out of Central Florida.

    The Jags better sign harvery up, they traded half their draft away to get him, and the last thing they need is a long hold out, and a non-impact player for the first bunch of weeks

    Panthers agreed to terms with first-round RB Jonathan Stewart on a five-year contract. His deal has a base value of $14 million and a maximum value of $20 million. He will get $10.795 million in guarantees. Stewart was already running and hitting Saturday, hours after signing. The team released running back Alex Haynes and linebacker Brandon Jamison to make room on the roster.

    The Carolina Panthers signed running back Jonathan Stewart to a five-year deal that includes $10.8 million in guaranteed money, putting all their draft picks under contract early Saturday before the team's first training camp practice.

    NFC South blog

    ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas writes about all things NFC South in his division blog.

    • Blog network: NFL Nation

    Stewart came to terms on the deal that could be worth up to $20 million hours after fellow first-round pick Jeff Otah signed his contact late Friday. Both players were on the field for the team's opening practice Saturday morning.
    "It was incredibly important for Jonathan and everyone involved to have him there for camp in time," Stewart's agent, Ben Dogra, said. "It's an important year for him, as well as the team, being his rookie year. We're all glad we were able to complete the deal."

    To make room on the 80-man roster, the Panthers released running back Alex Haynes and linebacker Brandon Jamison.

    Stewart, the 13th overall pick out of Oregon, is expected to compete for the starting running back job with last year's backup, DeAngelo Williams. The Panthers released last year's starter, DeShaun Foster, after struggling to get a consistent running game last season.

    The 5-foot-10, 235-pound Stewart missed offseason workouts following toe surgery, but passed his physical and was cleared to practice.

    The 6-6, 330-pound Otah, the 19th overall pick from Pittsburgh, is expected to start at right tackle as part of an overhaul of Carolina's offensive line. The Panthers will likely have different players starting at all five positions this season.

    The deals mean the Panthers avoid a rookie holdout for a second straight year. First-round pick Jon Beason missed the first eight days of training camp last year in a dispute over how his bonus money would be distributed.

    "There are no distractions, team-wise now," general manager Marty Hurney said. "Everybody is signed and it's a good way to start training camp."

    Cowboys sign Jones and Jenkins to 5 year deals

    Mike Jenkins:

    Cowboys agreed to terms with first-round CB Mike Jenkins on a five-year contract. Jenkins is a candidate to be Dallas' nickel corner by 2009, but he's more likely to focus on a dime back role and special teams as a rookie.
    Felix Jones:

    Cowboys agree to terms with first-round RB Felix Jones on a five-year contract.
    Details have not yet been released. Jones will arrive in Oxnard Saturday morning and is scheduled to practice in the afternoon. For now, he's a change of pace back and possible kick returner. The Cowboys will likely use Jones like the Jets do Leon Washington.

    Titans sign Johnson to 5 year deal

    Chris Johnson:

    Titans agreed to terms with first-round RB Chris Johnson on a five-year contract.
    Johnson's deal is for $12 million with $7 million guaranteed. He's expected to see playing time immediately as a jack-of-all-trades in the Titans' backfield. Johnson has the look of an intriguing sleeper in points per reception leagues.

    Saints sign Sedrick Ellis to 5 year deal

    Sedrick Ellis:

    The New Orleans Saints had a breakthrough Tuesday night in negotiations with first-round draft pick Sedrick Ellis that allowed them to reach agreement on a five-year deal that could max out at $49 million, a source close to the situation told ESPN.com.

    ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas writes about all things NFC South in his division blog.

    Saints general manager Mickey Loomis confirmed the deal but would not reveal financial terms for the linebacker out of Southern California.

    "It's about time," said Loomis. "It took a little longer than it should have."

    With the seventh selection in the draft agreeing, two other first-round holdouts could end. Jacksonville defensive end Derrick Harvey, taken eighth, and Bengals linebacker Keith Rivers, the ninth pick, are the only remaining unsigned players.

    According to a source, the Ellis deal could be worth as little as $32 million or $33.5 million, but if he plays like the expectations of the seventh pick in a draft, Ellis could make $49 million. A source said the contract guarantees $19.5 million.

    Ellis was drafted to anchor a talented defensive line that features two of the higher paid defensive ends -- Charles Grant and Will Smith. He was the last of the Saints draft choices to sign.

    An All-America selection and the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year in 2007, Ellis had 58 tackles, 12 tackles for losses and 8 sacks in 13 games last season. He also was credited with breaking up seven passes.

    Coaches said Ellis impressed them in rookie camp and minicamp. However, he'll have some catching up to do after missing the first 12 practices of training camp.

    Bensel said Ellis is expected to arrive Wednesday, when the Saints have only one practice scheduled in the late afternoon.
