KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) -The Seahawks are already starting faster than they have in four years.
For the first time since 2003, Seattle signed all its draft choices before the start of training camp. The final one came Thursday when top pick Josh Wilson agreed to a four-year contract just before rookies were due to report.
Agent Brian Mackler refused to confirm financial details for Wilson, a 5-foot-9 cornerback from Maryland with 4.3 speed in the 40-yard dash. The Seahawks expect the 55th overall choice to win the nickel back job on passing downs and become their kickoff returner.
``It is a four-year deal and a very, very good deal for Josh,'' Mackler said when reached by telephone.
By comparison, the Philadelphia Eagles signed defensive end Victor Abiamiri, the 57th overall pick, to a four-year contract that reportedly averages about $800,000 per season. At the top of the second round, Paul Posluszny, the 34th overall choice, signed a four-year deal with the Buffalo Bills that includes $2.55 million in guaranteed money and is worth a total of $4.75 million.
Seattle also signed defensive end Baraka Atkins, a fourth-round choice. To make room on the roster, the team waived former University of Washington running back Kenny James.
