According to Aaron Wilson from the Pro Football Network, the former Alief Taylor product signed a one-year contract worth $3.25 million with a $625,000 signing bonus with up to $1 million guaranteed. Okoronkwo will also have a chance to earn up to $500,000 in playing time incentives.

Okoronkwo saw the most playing time last year with 13 games and 225 snaps on defense. The 6-1, 253-pound edge defender provided 15 combined tackles, three tackles for loss, six quarterback hits, 2.0 sacks, and two forced fumbles.
