Draft pick from Camden signs deal with Eagles

Posted: May 30, 2003

Jamaal Green, the Eagles' fourth-round pick out of Woodrow Wilson High in Camden, agreed to a four-year deal yesterday that includes a $325,000 signing bonus.

The 6-foot-2, 272-pound defensive end could make slightly more than $2 million if he achieves all the incentives in his contract. The deal includes an escalator clause for the fourth season based on various incentives in the first three years.

Green, who will turn 23 next week, was one of two defensive ends the Eagles drafted out of the University of Miami. The other was Jerome McDougle, the team's first-round selection, who remains unsigned.

Also still unsigned are second-round pick L.J. Smith, third-round pick Billy McMullen, sixth-round pick Jeremy Bridges, and seventh-round pick Norman LeJeune.

The Eagles have a rookie salary pool of slightly more than $2.8 million and should have about $2.3 million to sign the remainder of their drafted players.
