Jaguars sign third-round OG Cann


The Sports Xchange

The Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday announced they have signed third-round guard A.J. Cann.

Cann’s deal is expected to be worth about $3 million, including an $800,000 signing bonus.

That puts all of the Jaguars’ draft picks under contract as the team fields a minicamp this week.

Cann, who started 51 games at South Carolina, is competing at left guard against veteran Zane Beadles as the Jaguars seek to improve a line that gave up a franchise-record 71 sacks last season. The team also signed veteran right tackle Jermey Parnell and center Stefen Wisniewski.

Cann’s signing leaves just eight unsigned draft picks across the NFL, including first-rounders Marcus Mariota (Tennessee Titans quarterback), Ereck Flowers (New York Giants tackle) and Malcom Brown (New England Patriots defensive tackle).
