Former Hokies wide receiver Danny Coale agreed to contract terms with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday.
Terms were not disclosed, but Coale, who was taken in the fifth round, is believed to have signed a four-year contract with a base salary worth the league minimum of $390,000 (2012), $480,000 (2013), $570,000 (2014) and $660,000 (2015), according to ESPN Dallas.
His draft slot was also due a signing bonus of $190,052.
Coale, who is expected to compete for the Cowboys’ No. 3 receiver job, broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot during the first organized team activity in May and will not be able to practice in Dallas’ mandatory mini-camp this week. He hopes to be back when the team reports for training camp July 25.
