Rookie quarterback Matt Barkley agreed to terms on a four-year contract Thursday.

Barkley, the team's fourth-round draft pick out of USC, is expected to compete with Michael Vick, Nick Foles and Dennis Dixon for the starting job during training camp and the preseason.

His deal leaves tackle Lane Johnson, the Eagles' first-round draft pick from Oklahoma, as the team's only unsigned rookie.

Rookies are scheduled to report to training camp at the NovaCare Complex on July 22.
