The last unsigned draft pick soon could be signing his contract.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Jaguars and receiver Justin Blackmon are close on an agreement.
The source says that the deal “should get done soon.”
Blackmon, the fifth overall pick in the draft, had yet to agree, presumably because of efforts by the team to protect itself in the event Blackmon gets in trouble off the field, again.
Last month, Blackmon pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI charges, following an arrest that resulted in a measured blood-alcohol concentration of 0.24 percent.
