Deon Butler signs four-year deal

Danny O'Neil at the Seattle Times is reporting that the Seahawks have agreed terms with third round pick Deon Butler. Terms haven't been disclosed, but it's a four-year contract. Only Aaron Curry and Max Unger remain unsigned, with training camp beginning at the end of July.

As O'Neil reports, only Matt Stafford (QB, Detroit) and Mark Sanchez (QB, NY Jets) have agreed terms from the 2009 class of first round picks. Terrell Suggs' recent $63m 6-year agreement with Baltimore may be used as a marker in negotiations with Aaron Curry, as could Chris Long's $56.5m contract with the Rams last year.

Curry is moving to Seattle today, according to the latest update on his facebook page. He's moving into his new house and picking up his dogs ready for life with the Seahawks. Hopefully an agreement is imminent.

Aside from Butler, Mike Teel, Courtney Greene, Nick Reed and Cameron Morrah have all signed contracts ahead of camp.
