Default Buster Davis Signs 5 year deal

Davis, Chargers agree to deal

By BERNIE WILSON, AP Sports Writer
July 23, 2007

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Receiver Craig Davis agreed to a five-year contract on Monday, ensuring that the San Diego Chargers' first-round draft pick will be on the field for the opening practice of training camp for just the second time this decade.

The deal is believed to contain about $5.5 million in guaranteed money and could be worth more than $11 million if he meets all incentives.


The Chargers hit another jackpot Monday evening -- second-round pick Eric Weddle agreed to a four-year contract, meaning the team's entire draft class has agreed to deals before the start of camp for the first time since 1997.

"We're happy," general manager A.J. Smith said. "It's kind of nice. You want to have all your players in, and players want to be in."

Rookies and selected veterans are due to report Tuesday night, with their first practice on Wednesday. The rest of the veterans report on Friday, with the first full-squad practice on Saturday.

Also Monday, linebacker Anthony Waters (third round), tight end Legedu Naanee (fifth round) and linebacker Brandon Siler (seventh round) agreed to four-year deals, as did cornerback Paul Oliver, who was taken in the fourth round of the supplemental draft.

Tight end Scott Chandler, a fourth-round pick, signed a four-year contract in June.

In 2003, first-round draft pick Sammy Davis missed a meeting the night before camp opened, but signed his contract in time for the first practice the following morning.

The team hasn't had good luck getting its first-rounders into camp on time in recent years.

LaDainian Tomlinson had a long holdout in 2001, Quentin Jammer missed all of training camp in 2002 and Philip Rivers held out for the first four weeks in 2004. Shawne Merriman missed the first week of camp the following year, and Antonio Cromartie missed the first two practices last summer.

Craig Davis was the 30th overall pick in the April draft.

"It was very important for Craig to be in camp on time," said his agent, Joel Segal of Blue Equity. "He made it clear to me he did not want to hold out. It's a good deal for Craig and a good deal for the team."

Davis didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Davis started 25 of 44 games at LSU, catching 141 passes for 2,107 and seven touchdowns.

He could become the go-to guy on the Chargers' young, undistinguished receiving corps. Keenan McCardell was cut after his production dropped, and neither McCardell nor the other opening day starter, Eric Parker, had a touchdown catch last season.

The Chargers haven't had a wide receiver lead them in catches since Curtis Conway in 2001. Since then, either Tomlinson -- the NFL's MVP last season -- or All-Pro tight end Antonio Gates has had the most catches.


nice to see that he didnt want to hold out

I'm so thirlled all our draft picks our actually in, its been ages since this has happned for us. It means, or at least we can interpret it to mean, that these rookies understand how importnat it is for them to be in camp at a time like this.
