Claiborne Not Worried About Contract; Eyes Camp Debut

ARLINGTON, Texas --Although offset language could be a minor sticking point in negotiations with top-10 draft picks, cornerback Morris Claiborne believes his rookie contract will get finalized in due time.

"I'm not worried about that right now," Claiborne said Thursday. "Everything that I've been hearing is it's been going good. Those guys are the professionals at that. I like to know what's going on, but I leave it up to them and let those guys handle it."

Due to wrist surgery in late March for a torn ligament, Claiborne hasn't practiced since the Cowboys drafted him sixth overall. But Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones said team athletic trainers have informed him that Claiborne should be ready for the start of training camp in late July.

Thursday's final minicamp practice marked the Cowboys' last team workout before camp.

"I don't have any doubt that he will be here, conditioned, ready," Jones said. "He's gotten a lot of mental (reps) in during this time. That will serve him well."
