Jaguars sign quarterback Trevor Lawrence for $36.8 Million Dollars

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 selection by the Jaguars in the 2021 NFL Draft, signed his rookie contract Monday morning. He became the sixth of the Jaguars’ ’21 draft selections to sign with the team.

The selection of Lawrence, who played at Clemson University, marked the first time the Jaguars ever held the No. 1 overall selection in a collegiate draft. Duration and terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Lawrence (6-feet-6, 213 pounds), who played in 40 games at Clemson from 2018-20, went 34-2 as a starter – the third-best winning percentage by a starting quarterback with at least 30 career starts in college football since 1978. Lawrence, who led Clemson to a national championship as a true freshman in 2018, finished his collegiate career undefeated as a starter in the regular season and did not lose a regular season game in high school or college.

Lawrence completed 758 of 1,138 passes at Clemson for 10,098 yards, 90 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He is one of six quarterbacks in ACC history with at least 10,000 passing yards and the only quarterback to win three ACC Championship Games. 

He also rushed for 943 yards and 18 rushing touchdowns in three seasons at Clemson.

The Jaguars currently have three ’21 draft selections unsigned: Running back Travis Etienne Jr. (Round 1, No. 25, Clemson), cornerback Tyson Campbell (Round 2, No. 33 overall, Georgia) and offensive tackle Walker Little (Round 2, No. 45 overall, Stanford).

The Jaguars also have signed wide receiver Jalen Camp (Round 6, No. 209, Georgia Tech), defensive end Jordan Smith (Round 4, No. 121, Alabama-Birmingham), tight end Luke Farrell (Round 5, No. 145, Ohio State), safety Andre Cisco (Round 3, No. 65, Syracuse), defensive tackle Jay Tufele (Round 4, No. 106, Southern California).
