Scotty McGee is less that two weeks away from his first NFL training camp, but he still doesn't have a contract.
But McGee, who was selected by the Jacksonville Jaguars in Round 6 of this April's NFL draft, says a deal is close.
"We're finishing up," McGee said Monday by phone.
The Jaguars report for training camp July 29 at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
"It'll definitely be done by then," said McGee. "I'm just ready to go."
McGee was one of two players from James Madison taken in this year's draft. The other, defensive lineman/linebacker Arthur Moats, was drafted by the Bills earlier in Round 6.
Moats signed a four-year rookie deal with Buffalo in June that included a $112,000 signing bonus.
McGee is one of four unsigned draft picks on the Jaguars' roster. He says he's been busy working out in preparation for his rookie season.
"That's my agent's job," he said of his contract negotiations. "I'm getting ready to do my job."
