The Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2013 fifth-round pick Denard Robinson to a deal, making the former Michigan quarterback the sixth of eight players drafted to receive a contract.
All players under contract are scheduled to report to training camp July 25.
"As I said before, we expect to have all eight draft picks under contract prior to the beginning of training camp," Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said. "We are excited to get Denard under contract. He had a very productive offseason for us and will continue to get better with each practice. He's passionate about football and has been a very good team player."
Robinson played in 49 games at Michigan, and finished his career with the most rushing yards by a quarterback in NCAA history with 4,495. He's the fourth player in NCAA history to throw for 2,000-plus yards and rush for 1,000-plus yards in a season, and he did in 2010 and 2011.
