The agreement ends a franchise record 33-day holdout which forced Harvey to miss all of training camp, as well as the first three games of the Jaguars preseason. At this point, it is unclear whether or not Harvey will play in the Jaguars preseason finale Thursday night in Washington.
The catching up process will now begin for the Jaguars top-pick as he needs a crash-course in Gregg Williams's defensive scheme, so he can make somewhat of a contribution in the first month of the season. Harvey's presence is necessary for a team that has Super Bowl aspirations, as the team hasn't been able to manufacture much of a pass rush throughout the preseason with the pieces that they currently have.
Escalators were reportedly the hold-up in the negotiation process, as both sides finally came to terms and ended this major embarrassment that was hanging over the franchise. At this point it is not clear what move the Jaguars have made to make room for Harvey on their 75-man roster, but JagNation will bring it to you as soon as we are aware.
