ANDERSON, Ind. — The Colts and first-round DE Jerry Hughes have agreed on a five-year deal, according to Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Head coach Jim Caldwell said following Monday morning's practice that he expects Hughes will be with the rest of the team when they take the field for the first time in pads this afternoon.

Hughes is the last of the club's eight drafted rookies to agree on a deal. With his expected arrival, all players under contract will be in attendance on the first day of camp.

WR Reggie Wayne and DE Robert Mathis, who were both no-shows for OTAs and mandatory minicamp because they are unhappy with their contracts, participated in Monday morning's workout.

Hughes, 6-1¾, 255 pounds, recorded 40½ sacks in four seasons at TCU. He won the Hendricks Award and Lott Trophy his senior season.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Hughes, whom the Colts want to get on the field as much as possible this season with Pro Bowl DEs Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis, "might not fit the prototype from a height-weight-speed standpoint and still could improve defending the run but is fast off the edge, plays on his feet and shows the type of flexibility and relentlessness desired of pass rushers at the next level."
