DAVIE, Fla. (AP) â€” Jared Odrick's agent says the Miami Dolphins' first-round draft pick has agreed to terms and will take part in the team's first training camp practice Friday.
A defensive end from Penn State, Odrick (Ah'-drick) agreed to a five-year deal worth $7.13 million guaranteed, and the package could be worth up to $13 million, agent Drew Rosenhaus said Thursday.
Odrick is the front-runner for a starting job as a replacement for veteran Phillip Merling, who hurt his Achilles' tendon this month and will miss the entire season.
The 6-foot-5, 304-pound Odrick was the Big Ten defensive player of the year in 2009, and the Dolphins made him the 28th pick in the draft.
