Barnett signed a 4 year contract. I thought most first rounders had a team option on the 5th year.

I think it's usually a four-year deal with a fifth-year option.

Changed days from speculating whether the first round pick would be signed in time for training camp.

Yesc, it's a team option.

I think the team decides by the end of year three if they want to exercise the option at a predetermined rate based on draft slot and position. I think it may be tied to transition tenders or something similar.
