The Jaguars announced Monday that they have agreed to terms on a contract with rookie first-round pick WR Justin Blackmon.

Blackmon is expected to sign the contract Monday evening or Tuesday morning, per the team.

The fifth overall pick in this year's draft, Blackmon will be the last of this year's draft picks to sign. He missed the first 11 days of Jacksonville's training camp.

Blackmon was arrested for DUI in June and pled guilty in July. His arrest played a role in complicating contract negotiations, as it's believed the Jaguars wanted protection in case Blackmon gets into more trouble off the field.
