JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars signed fourth-round draft pick Jordan Smith.

The team has two of its nine draft picks under contract.

Smith was expected to sign a four-year deal worth about $4.22 million under the NFL’s rookie slotting system.

The 6-foot-7, 255-pound Smith started his college career at nearby Florida but was dismissed after getting caught up in a credit card scandal.

He ended up at Butler Community College in Kansas and then transferred to UAB. He had 14½ sacks in two seasons in Birmingham, Alabama.
