It has yet to be disclosed just exactly how much the rookie will make as a Cowboy, but he has signed the contract in record time. Ever since owner and general manager Jerry Jones purchased the team in 1989, they have never signed a draft pick before rookie mini camp which is set to begin Friday and go through Sunday.
Charlton‘s contract is for four years but has a fifth year option included. Although it’s unknown as of yet how much the contract will be worth (come back to this article for updates), Taco’s contract could range anywhere from $10-$30 million and have a heavy signing bonus included. If Taco makes the same money as last year’s 28th pick, his contract would be on the lower end around $10 million.
