Former Penn State wide receiver and 61st overall NFL Draft selection Allen Robinson made his place in the NFL official yesterday, inking a four-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Robinson, who did this, if you forgot for some reason, was selected by the Jags in the second round of the draft and will have former UCF signal caller Blake Bortles to catch passes from. The deal could be worth up to $3.5 million and includes a $873,000 signing bonus, according to Jacksonville.com.

“It was real exciting,” Robinson said after signing in a Jaguars press release. “It took a little bit of time, but we finally have that done and out of the way. It’s just a breath of fresh air to get that out of the way.”

Robinson has been dealing with a hamstring injury and hasn’t practiced thus far in the summer, according to ESPN. He noted in the press release that the hammy has been feeling better and he should be ready for training camp.

Penn Staters will be certainly rooting for him throughout his NFL career after he set school records in single-season receptions (97) and receiving yards (1,432) in 2013. He also finished his career with the second-most overall receptions in school history (177). Hopefully, the 6-foot-3 Robinson has a bright NFL career ahead of him.
