Justin Blackmon Drafted

Justin Blackmon signs with the Jaguars

The last unsigned draft pick in the NFL, Justin Blackmon, has finally come to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars, allowing him to join his team in camp.

According to Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union, Blackmon will likely sign his contract tomorrow when he arrives in Jacksonville.

Due to the rules of the new CBA, Blackmon is not allowed to participate in full pads in practice until four days after he signs his contract, leaving his chances of playing in the Jaguars' first preseason game remote at best.

The terms of the contract are not immediately apparent, but it's likely that the Jaguars were able to secure some level of protection in case Blackmon is able to keep his record clean from here on out.
