JACKSONVILLE, Fla – The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed DT Sheldon Day to his rookie contract. The Jaguars selected Day in the fourth round (103rd overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Day, 6-1, 293, started 32 of 48 games during his four-year career at Notre Dame. A two-time winner of the Notre Dame Moose Krause Defensive Lineman of the Year Award and team captain, Day finished his career with 141 tackles (91 solo), 32.0 tackles for loss, eight passes defensed, 7.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Day is the fifth draft pick selected by the Jaguars from Notre Dame. Jacksonville has now selected a Notre Dame product in consecutive drafts as the team drafted TE Ben Koyack in 2015 (seventh round, 229th overall).
