On Friday the Jaguars signed head coach Doug Marrone, general manager Dave Caldwell, and EVP Tom Coughlin to new deals that secure them in Jacksonville through 2021. On Saturday the Jaguars signed Blake Bortles to a new contract through 2020. While Bortles will make an annual average salary of $18 million over the course of the contract, the Jaguars are actually saving $9 million in cap space. By signing Bortles and waiving RB Chris Ivory the Jaguars were able to create $12.6 million in cap space in just over 24 hours.
The team now has the room to sign wide receiver Allen Robinson to a new contract, which according to Ian Rapoport, is exactly what the Jaguars will try to do.
Rap Sheet may have stolen my descriptive word for the Jaguars trio of leaders at the top of the football side of the organization, but I'll forgive him for that. Ha.
But Rap Sheet is usually on the money with this sort of thing. He called the Jaguars sticking with Bortles in 2018 and was absolutely correct on that. It looks like the Jaguars are going to make a run at a new Allen Robinson contract, which is exactly what they should do. Robinson has number one receiver potential and is a self motivated player. Get that man a deal, Jaguars!
