Jaguars sign Ace Sanders, per report


The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed another member of their rookie class, adding fourth-round pick Ace Sanders, leaving just Josh Evans the lone unsigned draft pick.

From Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union, Sanders' four-year contract includes a $481,448 signing bonus and a first-year salary cap figure of $525,362.

Sanders is expected to be the Jaguars punt returner on opening day, as he displayed the ability to be a big play threat from that position in college with South Carolina. He will also be competing for playing time on the offense as the team's primary slot wide receiver, going up against Jordan Shipley.

With the suspension of Justin Blackmon for the first four games of the year, it's possible Sanders is heavy in the receiver rotation early on.
