The Jacksonville Jaguars agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $5.1 million on Tuesday with Andre Branch, according to a report from Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. This is the first pick from April's NFL Draft that the team has reached a deal with.

Branch, a 6-foot-5 defensive end from Clemson, was selected by Jacksonville last month with the No. 38 overall pick. As senior for the Tigers in 2011, he recorded 77 tackles, along with 10.5 sacks en route to earning All-ACC honors. He was also a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Award, which is presented annually to the best defensive end in all of college football. Over his four-year career, he finished with 179 tackles and 17.5 sacks.
