Nathan Rourke will soon become a Jacksonville Jaguar.
The 24-year-old Victoria native tweeted Sunday he’ll be signing soon with Jacksonville, which was one of 12 teams he worked out for after finishing the ’22 season with the B.C. Lions. The others included: Cleveland, the New York Giants, Kansas City, Cincinnati, L.A. Chargers, Las Vegas, Minnesota, Denver, Indianapolis, Tampa Bay and Arizona.
“I want to apologize for keeping many of you in suspense but my corner and I wanted to make sure we did our due diligence and explored every option thoroughly,” the quarterback said in his statement. “After much prayer and deliberation, I will be signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“I am looking forward to getting to work with my new teammates and coaches.”
Rourke has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Jaguars. Financial details — and how much of the agreement is guaranteed — weren’t immediately available but the NFL’s minimum salary for 2023 is US$750,000.
