The Jacksonville Jaguars have their entire rookie class under contract.
Third-round draft pick A.J. Cann, a 313-pound guard from South Carolina, signed his four-year deal Wednesday. Cann was the team’s lone rookie unsigned heading into a three-day, mandatory minicamp that began Tuesday.
Under the NFL’s rookie slotting system, Cann’s deal was projected to be worth a little more than $3 million and include a signing bonus worth around $800,000.
The Jaguars drafted Cann in hopes of upgrading an offensive line that allowed a franchise-record 71 sacks last season. Jacksonville also added right tackle Jermey Parnell and veteran center Stefen Wisniewski in free agency.
Never miss a local story.
Cann started 51 games in four years with the Gamecocks and is vying with veteran Zane Beadles at left guard.
