Jacksonville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Jacksonville Jaguars made it official on Friday and signed wide receiver Marqise Lee.
Terms of the deal for the second-round pick were undisclosed.

"We are excited to get Marqise's contract done as we head into training camp next week," said Jaguars general manager David Caldwell in a statement Friday. "As I said on draft day, we are fortunate to have a player like Marqise. He's a playmaker that is a threat every time he touches the ball and has a good feel for the game. He has been working extremely hard this offseason and is looking forward to getting back on the field next week."
