Josh Allen officially signs with Jacksonville

Josh Allen gets paid.

NFL: NFL Draft Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Kentucky’s seventh overall draft pick, Josh Allen has officially signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Allen fell to the seventh spot after some questionable picks going in front of him, but he landed in the perfect spot for him to shine defensively; In Sacksonville.

The Jaguars Twitter account shared this lovely photo to break the news that Allen is now a part of the Jaguars roster.

Allen’s deal is worth approximately $22.7 million over four years with a $14.6 million signing bonus.

Allen has been sidelined with a minor injury for the past couple days, but it is not a long-term injury and will have no long-term effects on Allen. He should be back in a few days and ready to roll for the pre-season.

The Jaguars should boast a top-ten defense with the amount of talent on that side of the ball, and with Allen, that’s just another crucial piece to building that team back up for AFC contention.
