SEATTLE -- Second-round draft choice Golden Tate says he and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a multiyear contract.

The wide receiver from Notre Dame posted on his Twitter page Wednesday morning that he had agreed to terms and conditions on his first NFL deal.

He says "let's play ball!"

Training camp begins on Saturday.

Tate is the highest of Seattle's nine draft picks to reach an agreement with the team.

The Seahawks' first-round picks -- sixth-overall pick and left tackle Russell Okung and safety Earl Thomas -- are the only two from Seattle's 2010 draft class to remain unsigned.
