Josh Evans agrees to terms with Jaguars

When the Jaguars open up camp next week, they’ll have all 90 players under contract.

The team announced Thursday that they have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with sixth-round pick Josh Evans. The safety is the last of the team’s eight draft picks to reach a deal with the team, leaving them with no contractual work to do before camp gets underway. Evans is expected to formally sign the agreement on Monday.

Evans was the second safety that the Jaguars added in April, joining second-round pick Jonathan Cyprien as new arrivals on the depth chart. Cyprien is a better bet to play right away on defense, but Evans hardly has insurmountable obstacles in his path to playing time in the secondary. Until that comes, he’ll make his living on special teams.

Evans went to the University of Florida where he played next to Ravens first-round pick Matt Elam, who also agreed to contract terms on Thursday. Evans started 24 games over the course of his career in Gainesville.

    Well he’s a gator so how long until Ed kicked off the team? Over/under 1.5 years

    I rarely say this about the Jags player personnel dept but I think they got a steal in Evans. He was a less flashy version of his Florida counterpart Elam, but he’s got all the physical tools and had great production.

    Hope he and the other new guys help turn it around for the Jags to get them back to a winning record.

    They’ve been around 2 decades and are one of 32 NFL teams in approximately 20,000 cities in America.

    If you had to say “who?”, I’d have to say I feel bad for you, and yet I would hope you would be required to complete an application process before contributing to the gene pool for lack of intelligence. There’s enough of that in the US now as is.

    Good day.
