|Jags sign rookie WR Marqise Lee -- Wed Jul 16 8:51 pm --|
2nd rounder inks four-year deal
|Lee, the Jaguars’ first second-round selection (No. 39 overall), will return to Jacksonville on Friday and sign the deal.
Per the NFL’s slotting system, Lee’s contract is expected to be worth $5,174,016 and include a $2,082,924 signing bonus and a first-year salary cap number of $940,731.
FF Today's Take: An athletic receiver from USC, Marqise Lee missed most of OTAs with a bum ankle. He represents part of the young core Jacksonville is trying to build around so getting him signed and in camp on time was imperative for a team in need of a new offensive identity. Lee could be in the mix to start but faces competition at the position where Ace Sanders and fellow rookie Allen Robinson are also competing.
| Jags thin at receiver during OTAs -- Mon Jun 9 7:00 am --|
Shorts, Sanders and both rookies nursing injuries
|With seven of the 11 receivers — including veteran Cecil Shorts and second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson — out with various ailments, the group consisted of Kerry Taylor and three players who’ve yet to appear in a regular-season NFL game. Taylor and the other three weren’t drafted. (Florida Times Union)|
FF Today's Take: Both rookies, Lee (ankle) and Robinson (hamstring) are not expected to participate in Monday's OTA session. Ace Sanders is also missing time due to a hamstring injury while Shorts is sitting out with a calf injury. "I’ll try to go back there Monday, but it’s out of my control. It’s the time of year to kind of chill,” Shorts said. "No need to rush it."
