Jags, second-round pick Barnes agree to contract

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Second-round draft pick Khalif Barnes has agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Barnes, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound offensive tackle will get about $3 million, including a $1.435 million signing bonus, agent Ken Zuckerman said.

Barnes expected to be one of the first offensive lineman taken in the April draft, but he was admittedly disappointed after slipping to the Jags in the second round.

Jacksonville needed depth on the line because starting left tackle Mike Pearson is recovering from reconstructive knee surgery and entering the final year of his contract.

Barnes, only the second second-round draft pick to agree to a deal this offseason, was a four-year starter for the Huskies. He started 42 consecutive games before missing the final seven last season
