RENTON, Wash. - A person with knowledge of the deal says sixth-overall draft choice Russell Okung has agreed to a six-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks worth more than $29 million guaranteed and a maximum value of $58 million.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team isn't releasing contract details on the last first-round pick to sign.The Seahawks did confirm the deal was done on Friday morning.

Seattle selected Okung in April's draft out of Oklahoma State to replace retired All-Pro left tackle Walter Jones. New Seahawks coach Pete Carroll named him the starter the day he drafted Okung.

Okung missed the first six days of Seattle's training camp.
