Jacksonville Jaguars have landed Trevor Lawrence, the 21-year-old quarterback selected with the first overall pick in this year’s NFL Draft, the team announced on Monday.

Lawrence, who has won the 2018 collegiate American football championship with Clemson University, had to undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder in February but that did not act as a deterrent for the Jaguars, who made him the number one choice in the NFL draft in April.

“Gonna give (the Jaguars) everything I got,” Lawrence tweeted on Monday. “Couldn’t be more proud to represent Jacksonville. Let’s go!!!”

Lawrence’s rookie contract with the Jaguars is a four-year deal worth $36.8 million with a $24.1 million signing bonus, according to an AFP report.

The quarterback (QB) is the player directly behind the center receiving the ball. The quarterback’s main job is to throw the football and encourage his teammates to go score a touchdown, much like a central midfielder in soccer. In college, especially if the team runs a spread formation, the quarterback may run the ball as often as he passes, but in the NFL, the quarterback rarely runs with the ball.

The Jaguars had a below-par season last time out as the team struggled to a 1-15 season. The 2020/21 season was the club’s ninth losing season in 10 years. Jacksonville have had only one winning season or playoff berth since 2007. It came in 2017 where the Jaguars finished the regular season at a 10-6. They had lost to New England in the American Conference final that year.
