Jaguars reportedly sign 5th round pick Yasir Abdullah
The Jacksonville Jaguars reached terms with another draft pick. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Jaguars signed fifth-round pick Yasir Abdullah to a rookie deal.
Last week, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 in Houston reported that the Jaguars reached a deal with sixth-round pick Parker Washington. Wilson also reported Wednesday that the Jaguars have a deal in place with seventh-round pick Derek Parish. None of the three deals have been announced by the Jaguars.
Details of Abdullah’s contract weren’t revealed by Schefter, but it’s projected to be a four-year, $4,205,216 deal with a $365,216 signing bonus.
Abdullah was a highly productive pass rusher in college, racking up 23.5 sacks and 43 tackles for loss during his time at Louisville. The Jaguars finished the 2022 season near the bottom of the NFL in sacks with 35. The team hasn’t made many changes to address the issue and hasn’t yet signed a veteran after losing Arden Key in free agency.
