The Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2013 fifth-round draft pick Denard Robinson to a contract, the club announced today. Robinson, listed as an offensive weapon on the club’s roster, became the sixth of eight Jaguars draft picks in 2013 to sign a contract. All players under contract are scheduled to report to training camp on Thursday, July 25 with the first practice scheduled the following day.
“As I said before, we expect to have all eight draft picks under contract prior to the beginning of training camp,” Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said. “We are excited to get Denard under contract. He had a very productive offseason for us and will continue to get better with each practice. He’s passionate about football and has been a very good team player.”
“It’s a great feeling to sign my first NFL contract,” Robinson said. “It’s something I’ve been waiting my whole life for and I’m ready to get to camp later this month and get back to work. I was able to get a feel for the NFL game during the offseason and I look forward to getting the pads on and just keep improving with each practice.”
