Justin Blackmon Contract Worth 4-Years, $18.5 Million, According To Report

The Jacksonville Jaguars finally agreed to terms with first-round draft pick Justin Blackmon, ending his 12-day hold out from training camp. According to a report by Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union, Blackmon's deal is worth four-years and $18.5 million.

This differs a bit from a report by Adam Schefter, who reported the deal was worth four-years and $19.5 million.

While the difference of just one million dollars in this regard doesn't look like much, if you consider the contract the No. 5 overall pick receiver last season, if the numbers Stellino are reporting are true the Jaguars won the hold out. Patrick Peterson, who was picked by the Arizona Cardinals last season with the No. 5 overall pick received a four-year deal worth $18.43 million.

If Stellino's numbers are correct, this mean's Blackmon held out for nearly two weeks to earn $70,000 more than the No. 5 overall pick in 2011. There are some protections for the team in the contract as expected, according to Jason La Canfora.
