Odrick agrees to terms [with contract value]

Jared Odrick and the Dolphins have agreed to terms on a multi-year contract, according to a league source and the defensive end will be available when the team hits the field for the first practice Friday afternoon.

Contract details are not yet available but should come in soon.

This isn't rocket science. If the deal is structured like others around the slot -- Odrick was selected No. 28 overall in the first round -- it will be a five-year deal. Every pick signed so far in the first round has gotten a five-year deal.

[UPDATE: The deal is worth a maximum of $13,071,939 with $7,133,875 of that guaranteed, according to league source.]

The agreement is good news for the team, player and agents Drew Rosenhaus and Jason Rosenhaus.

The Dolphins need Odrick in camp because they want to maximize his chances of starting, particularly following the loss of Phillip Merling to season-ending Achilles' injury recently.

Odrick obviously is happy because he's got his contract and he won't miss any work.

Rosenhaus wins because he continues his reputation for dealing successfully with the Dolphins. That obviously could help him add more clients in the future.

Second-round pick Koa Misi is now the lone Dolphins draft pick not yet signed or agreed. The club and Misi's agent almost had a deal a few days ago but details kept that from happening.
