ASHBURN, Va -

The Washington Redskins have reached an agreement with No. 4 overall pick Trent Williams on a six-year, $60 million contract.

Williams plans to sign the deal in the morning and will then take part in Friday's practice at training camp.

The deal, which has $36.75 million in guaranteed money, ends a one-day holdout after Williams missed the first day of camp Thursday.

Williams was one of three University of Oklahoma players taken in the first four picks of this year's draft. Former teammates Sam Bradford, picked first by the St. Louis Rams, and Gerald McCoy, taken third by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, have yet to sign as of Friday morning. Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska, the No. 2 pick by the Detroit Lions, also remains unsigned.

Williams is projected to be Washington's starting left tackle, filling the void left by the retirement of six-time Pro Bowler Chris Samuels.
