Josh Allen signs rookie contract with Jacksonville Jaguars

@Jaguars

Josh Allen is officially a Jacksonville Jaguar.

College football’s consensus 2018 National Defensive Player of the Year put pen to paper Thursday afternoon to sign his first NFL contract with the Jaguars.

“It feels good to focus on football now, and just worry about football – and not worry about anything off the field,” Allen said. “I know everything’s settled in now. I’m ready for my family to get down here, and be a Jacksonville Jaguar for life.

“I’m just ready to make a name for myself in the National Football League. It’s official. I’m officially a Jaguar. It feels great.”

The terms of his contract have not yet been leaked to the public. Last year the other Josh Allen was picked in the same spot, seventh overall. He signed a 4-year contract worth more than $21 million that included a $13 million signing bonus. If Allen gets anywhere near that, today was certainly a good day.

Even though Allen will briefly be sidelined with a knee contusion, the former Wildcat is still in good enough shape to get PAID.

      Have to agree; don’t even walk out on the field without the contract. It worked in “Jerry Maguire” but that was just a movie.

      I am not sure “Jerry Maquire” should be the source for all things legal in football.

      No I am not “sure.” But common sense says players in this situation don’t throw caution to the wind and risk multi-million dollar contracts at a whim. If you know otherwise, please post.

      J’ville is in Duval County Florida so that DUUU is part of their chant.
