Offensive tackle D.J. Fluker agreed to terms Wednesday with the San Diego Chargers on a rookie contract.
Fluker, the No. 11 overall pick in the NFL Draft in April, received a four-year, $11.4 million contract that includes a $6.6 million signing bonus, NFL Network reported.
A two-year starter at right tackle for national champion Alabama, Fluker joins a team that hopes to solidify its offensive line. The 6-foot-5, 339-pound Fluker was a second-team All-American last year.
With Fluker's announcement, the Chargers became the seventh NFL team to have all of its picks from this year's draft under contract.
