Jaguars sign Josh Evans

Posted Jul 20, 2013

Jaguars sign sixth-round draft pick Josh Evans; all eight draft picks under contract.

The Jacksonville Jaguars signed 2013 sixth-round draft pick Josh Evans to a contract, the club announced today.  All eight of the club’s draft picks are under contract and are scheduled to report to training camp on Monday, July 22.  Veterans will report to training camp on Thursday, July 25 with the first practice set for the following day at 9:55 a.m.

“We are happy to get Josh signed and have all 90 players under contract as we get set for training camp,” Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said.  “Josh had a productive offseason of work and will continue to improve with more experience.  As Coach Bradley has stated numerous times, our central theme is competition each day and all of our young players will have an opportunity to play a role this season.  We want to build off what we established in the offseason as we get prepared for the regular season.”

“I can’t wait to get to work on Monday,” Evans said.  “I’m excited to be a part of this organization and what it stands for.  I’m committed to getting on the field whether it’s special teams or defense and make the best of my opportunity.”
