SAN DIEGO (AP) -Receiver Craig Davis agreed to a five-year contract on Monday, just the second time since 2001 that the San Diego Chargers' top draft pick will be in training camp on time.
Rookies and selected veterans are due to report Tuesday, with their first practice on Wednesday. The rest of the veterans report on Friday, with the first full-squad practice on Saturday.
Also Monday, linebacker Anthony Waters (third round), tight end Legedu Naanee (fifth round) and linebacker Brandon Siler (seventh round) agreed to four-year deals, as did cornerback Paul Oliver, who was taken in the fourth round of the supplemental draft.
Tight end Scott Chandler, a fourth-round pick, signed a four-year contract in June.
Safety Eric Weddle, acquired when the Chargers moved up in the second round, remained the team's only draft pick who hadn't agreed to terms.
Davis was the 30th overall pick in the April draft.
``It was very important for Craig to be in camp on time,'' said his agent, Joel Segal of Blue Equity. ``He made it clear to me he did not want to hold out. It's a good deal for Craig and a good deal for the team.''
Davis didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
Davis started 25 of 44 games at LSU, catching 141 passes for 2,107 and seven touchdowns.
He could become the go-to guy on the Chargers' young, undistinguished receiving corps. Keenan McCardell was cut after his production dropped, and neither McCardell nor the other opening day starter, Eric Parker, had a touchdown catch last season.
The Chargers haven't had a wide receiver lead them in catches since Curtis Conway in 2001. Since then, either LaDainian Tomlinson - the NFL's MVP last season - or All-Pro tight end Antonio Gates has had the most catches.
