Maybe Keith Rivers read Paul Schackman’s post. Doubt it. But Rivers did sign last night, leaving Derrick Harvey as the only first-round pick yet to sign with his team. Ken Kremer may be waiting for market value, but the former University of Florida defensive-end is missing valuable snaps while holding out.
Many have recently been postulating that Rivers and Harvey were playing a waiting game, waiting for the other to sign so that neither camp would look like it was being undervalued in the negotiations. Now that Rivers signed, will Harvey’s agent quickly work with Jaguars executives to get a deal done and have Harvey on the field? Will Kremer drop his market value argument in favor of a deal wedged between what Ellis (7th overall pick) and Rivers (9th overall pick) received?
