FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -First-round draft pick Levi Brown agreed to terms with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, six days after the team reported for training camp.
The six-year contract could be worth up to $62 million, just over $18 million guaranteed.
Brown's agent, Joel Segal, said his client was en route to Phoenix on Thursday night from his home in Virginia.
Brown was scheduled to take a physical Friday before signing his contract and joining the Cardinals at training camp on the Northern Arizona University campus.
The 6-foot-3, 323-pound offensive tackle out of Penn State was the No. 5 overall draft pick and has missed the Cardinals' first five days of practices.
``Levi is looking forward to joining the Cardinals coaches and players at practice (Friday),'' Segal said. ``The Cardinals stepped up and made this deal happen.''
The players immediately ahead of and behind Brown already had reached deals.
Defensive end Gaines Adams, the No. 4 pick, agreed to a six-year deal with Tampa Bay reportedly worth up to $46 million, with $18.6 million guaranteed. Defensive back LaRon Landry, the No. 6 pick who also is represented by Segal, agreed to a five-year, $41.5 million contract with Washington, with about $17.5 million guaranteed.
The Cardinals chose the 6-foot-5, 323-pound Brown in an attempt to bolster what has been a woeful offensive line. New Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt had used Brown mostly at right tackle during minicamps and voluntary workouts.
Brown has played mostly at left tackle, but that spot is held by free agent acquisition Mike Gandy. Oliver Ross has worked with the first team at right tackle so far in camp. Ross played for Whisenhunt when the coach was offensive coordinator at Pittsburgh, but lost his starting job with Arizona during last season.
Brown was the second offensive lineman chosen in the draft. Cleveland selected tackle Joe Thomas at No. 3. Thomas has signed a six-year deal reportedly worth $42.5 million, with $23 million guaranteed.
