The Los Angeles Chargers signed safety Derwin James to a four-year, $12.39 million contract, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

James, who was the Chargers' first-round pick (No. 17 overall) out of Florida State in the 2018 NFL Draft in April, reportedly will receive a $7.1 million signing bonus.

Some draft observers considered James a steal for the Chargers at No. 17, as many mock drafts had him possibly going in the top 10.

James has lined up primarily at strong safety in organized team activities, "but the Chargers plan to add more to his plate as the offseason moves along," according to the team's official website.

"He's a true interchangeable safety. He can play on the hash and cover ground," one scout said before the draft. "Yet he can come down to the slot and cover. He's what you want. He's a stud."

Baltimore Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said after the draft that the Ravens would have selected James had they not traded out of the No. 16 spot.
