The Jaguars and Taven Bryan have come to terms on his rookie contract. The deal, according to Ian Rapoport, is worth $10.2 million over 4 years with a $5.5 million signing bonus. Bryan's agent was able to negotiate a deal that actually exceeded the slotted value for his draft position. During the Dave Caldwell era in Jacksonville the team has been very generous with their first round picks. That trend continued with this deal.
Bryan, a rookie defensive lineman from the University of Florida, is known as "The Wyoming Wild Man" and is known for his elite strength and athletic traits. He'll enter camp as rotational defensive end and three technique, but will likely be asked to contribute more down the stretch.
He's got a long way to go in terms of consistency on the field, but the 6'5'', 291 lb. defensive lineman has all the tools to become an impact player sooner rather than later.
Bryan was one of the last draft picks from the 2018 NFL draft class to sign and was the final Jaguars rookie to ink a deal. The Jaguars entire 2018 draft class is now signed and expected to report to training camp on July 18th.
