ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -The Denver Broncos signed second-round draft pick Eddie Royal to a four-year deal Thursday on the eve of the start of training camp.
The only draft pick left unsigned is offensive tackle Ryan Clady, the team's first-round selection.
Broncos coach Mike Shanahan thought Clady's deal would be completed by the time the players reported Friday morning. Clady is slated to be the Broncos' starting left tackle.
``We are talking,'' Shanahan said Thursday. ``If you look at our history over the last 20 years, I think we've had one person hold out. So, the chances are he will be signed and ready to play.''
The 5-foot-10, 182-pound Royal is being counted on to play receiver and help out on special teams.
Royal wound up his four-year career at Virginia Tech as the school's all-time leader in all-purpose yards, finishing with 4,686 yards in 51 games. He also ranks fourth in career receptions (119) and fifth in receiving touchdowns (12).
