Second-round pick Daryl Washington signed a four-year contract Friday.
One rookie remains unsigned.
The Cardinals signed linebacker Daryl Washington, the team's second-round pick, to a four-year contract Friday as the Cards moved up to Flagstaff for training camp. Top pick Dan Williams is the only draftee without a contract with practice beginning Saturday.
With Washington agreeing to terms, the Cards had to cut fullback Reagan Mauia to make room on the 80-man roster.
Talks are ongoing with Williams, but even if he misses a couple of days, it won't matter in the grand scheme of camp. The last two No. 1 picks, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in 2008 and running back Beanie Wells in 2009, missed two and three days of camp, respectively and it didn't hamper their progress.
(Wells did sprain his ankle in his first practice, which kept him out and did set him back.)
But Williams' role is defined early as well. Washington needs time in camp because the Cards may have to lean on his sooner than expected.
Washington, whom the Cards coveted in the draft, is the man who is supposed to eventually replace departed free-agent Karlos Dansby. In theory he will start camp behind veteran Paris Lenon and the two will battle for Dansby's old job, although the lingering back injury to the other inside linebacker Gerald Hayes may alter those plans.
Among the other candidates to play inside include Ali Highsmith, Monty Beisel and Reggie Walker. The Cardinals did make an attempt to sign veteran Keith Bulluck last week, but Bulluck chose to sign with his hometown Giants instead.
