FRIDAY, 10:00am: The Jaguars announced (via Twitter) that Lee has signed his deal.
WEDNESDAY, 2:00pm: It took some time, but the Jaguars have finally signed all of their draft picks. The team has agreed to terms with second-round pick Marqise Lee, reports Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida-Times Union (via Twitter). John Oehser of Jaguars.com tweets that the deal will be signed Friday, and O’Halloran adds on Twitter that the team’s rookies will report to camp on Monday.
It’s unclear why it’s took so long for Lee to get signed, but some have suggested that the projected first-round pick may have been looking to recoup some guaranteed money after falling to 39th overall. The former USC Trojan finished fourth in the Heisman voting in 2012, but he had an underwhelming 2013 season. Lee finished with 57 catches for 791 yards and four touchdowns.
With Lee now off the board, three rookies remained unsigned: first-round picks Taylor Lewan (Titans) and Justin Gilbert (Browns) and third-rounder Billy Turner (Dolphins).
