Jaguars sign first-round draft pick Josh Allen

Thursday may not have started off the best for Jacksonville Jaguars rookie pass rusher and first-round draft pick Josh Allen, but it ended up pretty well in the afternoon. The team has announced the former Kentucky star signed his first NFL contract, which means six of the seven draft picks the Jaguars made in April have agreed to terms.

Thursday morning, head coach Doug Marrone met with the media to announce that Allen would be held out of practice and would be working off to the side after sustaining a bruised knee on the first day of OTAs on Tuesday.
