The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Myles Jack to his rookie contract, reportedly for four years worth a combined $6.3 million.

According to the NFL's slotting system for rookie contracts, there was very little wiggle room for Myles Jack when it came to contract numbers. According to Spotrac.com, his $2,806,866 signing bonus is spread out evenly over the life of his contract, giving him $701,746 each year for four years.

His base salary is broken down by the following years...

2016: $450,000

2017: $737,929

2018: $1,025,858

2019: $1,313,787

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell has indicated that Jack has the all-clear and had he still been in school at UCLA he'd be a full go in spring practices right now. The concern with Jack's knee is down the line, in the future, not right now. That doesn't mean the Jaguars won't take it slow with Jack and ease him back into the swing of things, as he hasn't practiced in a number of months, but there should not be any doubt about his prospectus for the 2016 season. As far as everyone is concerned right now, he's fully healthy and available to suit up for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
