Former Ohio State star wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. signed his rookie contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, officially joining former Ohio State left tackle Paris Johnson on the team.

The deal will reportedly be worth $35.37 million guaranteed over four yearswith a $22.5 million signing bonus. The Cardinals have a team option for a fifth season in 2028.

“All the guys around, offense and defense, have done a great job welcoming me,” Harrison said to the Cardinals official website. “I’m excited to go out there, earn the trust of my teammates, and earn a role any way I can.”

Harrison is the first of the top five picks in the draft to sign his rookie contract and the third of the Ohio State players drafted to do so, joining Tommy Eichenberg, who was taken in the fifth round by the Las Vegas Raiders (four years, $4.36 million) and Cade Stover with the Houston Texans after he was selected in the fourth round (four years, $4.76 million). Mike Hall Jr. still hasn’t signed his deal with the Cleveland Browns.
