The Louisiana native and former Alabama standout has his money.

According to a report from Jacksonville Jaguars senior writer John Oehser, offensive tackle Cam Robinson signed his contract for the team on Wednesday. Robinson, a second-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft, started all 43 games throughout his three-year career with the Crimson Tide.

Listed at 6-foot-6 and 322 pounds, the 2016 Southeastern Conference Jacobs Blocking Trophy winner and Outland Trophy recipient blocked for 28 career 100-yard rushing games. He cleared the way for seven 500-yard rushers at left tackle, including two 1,000-yard backs in Derrick Henry and Damien Harris.

Behind Robinson in 2015, Henry re-wrote the school’s single-season rushing mark with 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns on 395 carries – to earn the Heisman Trophy. As a pass protector, he assisted two 3,000-yard quarterbacks (Blake Sims, Jake Coker) and helped Jalen Hurts account for 2,780 passing yards, 954 rushing yards and 36 total touchdowns – en route to winning the SEC’s Offensive Player of the Year as a freshman.

While Robinson anticipates being a starter on the offensive line, his four-year contract with the Jaguars is expected to be worth $7.01 million – including a $3.24 million signing bonus per Spotrac.
