    Cowboys Sign First-Round Pick Taco Charlton to Contract

    Cowboys has signed his rookie contract today, according to a report from ESPN's Todd Archer. Dallas selected Charlton exactly two weeks ago today with the 28th overall pick in the 2017 .

    Terms of the contract are not yet known, but the NFL rookie wage scale takes a lot of the mystery out of things. recently projected the salaries for all first-round picks and had Charlton, as the 28th pick, making about $10 million over the four years with $5.4 million guaranteed. The official numbers should be close to that.

    If Chartlon becomes the impact defensive end that the Cowboys are hoping for, he will be a steal for the duration of this contract. A $2.5 million salary is what quality backups make on the .

    Also, because he was a first-round pick, Charlton could eventually get the fifth-year option that pays an average of the top salaries at his position. Because he was drafted outside of the top ten, Charlton's fifth-year salary would be calculated using the 11th-highest DE salary down to the 25th-highest.
