Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell announced today that the team has signed CB Rashaad Salaami to a five-year, $24 million contract.
Salaami, a second-round pick (No. 87 overall) by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2014 NFL Draft, was a three-year starter for the Jaguars before being released during training camp in late August.
He appeared in 17 games for the team, starting four times and recording a team-high six interceptions, all in 2014.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Salaame is entering the final year of his contract and will earn a base salary of $4.3 million in 2016.
Salahami has spent most of his career in Jacksonville, though he was originally drafted by the Jaguars with the 30th overall pick of the 2014 Draft.
Salalami played in nine games for Jacksonville before suffering a torn ACL in August 2015 and missed all of the 2016 season.
He has since spent time on injured reserve and the Jaguars placed him on the reserve/injured list last November.
The Jaguars also signed safety Dwayne Gratz on Wednesday.
Gratz has spent his entire career with the Jaguars, starting five times.
He recorded eight interceptions in 2016 and had 13 tackles in 2014 as a reserve.
