Cann signs with Jaguars


JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' entire draft class is under contract.

That became official early Wednesday afternoon when the last unsigned player from the Jaguars' 2015 rookie class signed with the team.

A.J. Cann, an offensive guard from the University of South Carolina, signed his rookie contract with the Jaguars shortly after noon Wednesday at EverBank Field following the team's minicamp practice. He was the last of eight players from the 2015 NFL Draft class to sign.

"I'm very excited to have it done," Cann told shortly after signing. "It's been a while, so I'm glad it's over with."

Cann (6-feet-3, 313 pounds), a third-round selection and the No. 67 selection overall, joined first-round defensive end Dante Fowler Jr., second-round running back T.J. Yeldon, fourth-round safety James Sample, fifth-round wide receiver Rashad Greene, sixth-round selection Michael Bennett, seventh-round wide receiver Neal Sterling and seventh-round tight end Ben Koyack as selections having signed with the Jaguars this offseason.

"I wasn't trying to make a big deal of it," Cann said. "I was trying to focus on football while I was here because I knew my agent was doing a good job negotiating and taking care of it. Today, it's finally over with and I'm happy that it's done. I'm glad to sign an official NFL contract. It was a great feeling."

Cann, like all Jaguars draft choices, worked out with the team while unsigned, participating in organized team activities in May and June and in this week's minicamp.

"It's going really good," Cann said. "I'm just enjoying being here in the NFL. Getting a chance to practice with my teammates and learning a new playbook – it's all coming to me and it's going good."
