RENTON, WA.—Russell Okung came to terms with the Seattle Seahawks on a six-year contract Friday and wasted little time taking to the field.
Okung, the No. 6 overall pick in the NFL draft, joined his teammates about 15 minutes into the afternoon practice and was working at left tackle.
A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press earlier Friday that Okung agreed to a six-year contract worth more than $29 million guaranteed and a maximum value of $58 million. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team isn't releasing contract details on the last first-round pick to sign.
The Seahawks did confirm the deal was done on Friday morning.
Seattle selected Okung in April's draft out of Oklahoma State to replace retired All-Pro left tackle Walter Jones. New Seahawks coach Pete Carroll named him the starter the day he drafted Okung.
Okung missed the first six days of Seattle's training camp.
