JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Cam Robinson is staying with the Jaguars, agreeing to a three-year contract extension with Jacksonville on Wednesday morning.

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Robinson signed a deal for $54 million with the team. The deal will average $18 million a year for Robinson.

General manager Trent Baalke said last week that the team was close to an extension with Robinson.

Robinson was a second-round pick of the Jaguars in 2017 out of Alabama. He started at left tackle as a rookie and has played 61 games in five seasons in the league. He missed most of his second season with a knee injury, playing only two games.

With Robinson signing the extension, the most likely scenario for the Jaguars in Thursday night’s NFL draft is the team to select an edge rusher. Jacksonville is projected to take a pass rusher at No. 1, either Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson or Georgia’s Travon Walker. Walker has gained momentum in the past week to be the pick.
