The Raiders dealt middle linebacker Kirk Morrison to Jacksonville to get the pick to draft Clemson wide receiver Jacoby Ford in the fourth round, according to the NFL Network.
On his Twitter account, Morrison said, “Good morning. I’m a Jacksonville Jaguar.”
Also sent to the Jaguars was one of their two fifth-round picks, No. 153 overall.
Morrison’s fate was sealed the moment he got an original round tender. Due a $2.512 million salary, Morrison was not going to be retained as a reserve in the wake of the selection of Rolando McClain in the first round.
