The Jaguars signed rookie receiver Allen Robinson to a contract Tuesday. Robinson was selected in the second round of May’s draft with the 61st-overall pick. The deal is for four years and worth up to $3.5 million. It includes an $873,000 signing bonus and a salary cap number this year of $638,000. “It’s been really exciting to get this under my belt,” Robinson said. “Now, I can focus on getting better and getting ready for training camp. I wasn’t too on edge about it. I knew it would happen. I understood the process, so I didn’t dwell on it.” With Robinson’s deal done, the lone unsigned draft pick remaining for the Jaguars is receiver Marqise Lee. The former Southern California standout was also taken in the second round with the 39th-overall choice. He is one of just four picks in the league unsigned. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Robinson flashed strong hands and precise route-running skills in the offseason program before a hamstring injury caused him to miss the final 10 practices. Jaguars receivers coach Jerry Sullivan praised Robinson for his route running often during practices. “I think I did some pretty good things,” Robinson said. “But, at the same time, I have a long way to go and a lot to improve on. That’s what makes it such a fun game, knowing where I’m at coming in and the areas I have to improve on. Thinking about the player I could be if I improve in those areas and taking coach Sullivan’s coaching and following behind some of the other vets. I’m trying to become a player that can make some plays for this organization.” The 20-year-old Robinson caught 177 passes for 2,474 yards with 17 touchdowns in three years at Penn State.
