GLENDALE, AZ (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have reached a contract agreement with first-round draft pick Jonathan Cooper.

The four-year deal is worth about $14.5 million, the maximum allowed under the NFL collective bargaining agreement for Cooper, a Hoggard alum, as the seventh pick overall.

The 6-foot-2, 311-pound guard from North Carolina missed the first two days of training camp, when the team worked out in shorts. He was en route to Arizona and also missed Sunday's practice, the team's first in pads. He was expected to practice Monday.

Cooper had worked out at left guard with the starting unit through the offseason.

The agreement leaves two first-round picks unsigned - cornerback Dee Milliner of the New York Jets (ninth pick overall) and guard Chance Warmack of the Tennessee Titans (10th).
