The San Diego Chargers have agreed to terms with second round defensive end Kendall Reyes, Adam Caplan of The Sideline View reports.
Financial terms of the four-year contract were not disclosed, but Reyes' signing bonus is expected to be in the $1.4 million range for a Year One cap hit of $750,545.
Reyes played both tackle and end at the University of Connecticut, totaling 142 tackles, including 32.5 for a loss and 11.5 sacks in his 49-game career. The 6-foot-4, 299-pound Reyes is expected to compete with 2009 fourth round pick Vaughn Martin and veteran Luis Castillo for the starting defensive end job opposite 2011 first round pick Corey Liuget.
Reyes is the first Chargers draft choice to agree to terms or sign his rookie contract and the fourth player chosen in the second round to do so. New York Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill (No. 43), Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (No. 45) and Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner (No. 47) have also agreed to terms or signed. Reyes was the 49th overall pick in the draft.
