Jaguars G Linder signs 4-year rookie contract

AP - Sports

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Rookie guard Brandon Linder, a third-round draft pick from Miami, has signed a four-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Linder signed the deal Monday. It's worth a little more than $2.7 million and includes a signing bonus around $530,000.

With Linder under contract, the Jaguars have three remaining rookies unsigned: quarterback Blake Bortles (first-round pick) and second-round receivers Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson.

Linder was a four-year starter for the Hurricanes. The Jaguars drafted him to compete for a starting job at right guard along with Jacques McClendon and Drew Nowak.

Linder is part of the team's offensive line overhaul, which included signing left guard Zane Beadles in free agency and finding a replacement for retired center Brad Meester.
