Former Gator Harvey Signs with Jaguars
Rookie defensive end Derrick Harvey ended a 33-day holdout Wednesday by signing a five-year, $23.8 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.Â Harvey was the last first-round draft pick to sign, a lengthy holdout that frustrated coach Jack Del Rio and left the former Florida standout way behind heading into the regular season.Â The eighth overall selection in April, Harvey was expected to immediately bolster a pass rush that struggled to pressure quarterbacks last season. But he missed all of training camp and the first three preseason games.Â It was unclear whether Harvey would play in the preseason finale Thursday night at Washington. He was driving from Gainesville to Jacksonville in hopes of traveling with the team to Washington later Wednesday.
