JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick Justin Blackmon ended his 12-day holdout on Monday and agreed to a four-year contract worth about $18.5 million, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

Blackmon is expected to sign the contract Tuesday and join the team.

Blackmon finally agreed to language protecting the Jaguars in case he has any more off the field incidents. He pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI last month.
