JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jaguars sign Myles Jack for a contract extension that makes him the third-highest paid insider linebacker in the NFL, according to a league source Adam Schefter from ESPN.
The four-year extension to 2023 is $ 57 million worth and $ 33 million guaranteed. Jack will earn $ 14.25 million a year as the expansion commences, beating only Bobby Wagner ($ 18 million) and CJ Mosley ($ 17 million) as an insider linebacker per annum Dallas Cowboys gave linebacker Jaylon Smith earlier this month. Smith signed a five-year extension worth $ 64 million, which includes a guaranteed $ 35.5 million. Jack and Smith were both considered potential first-round goals, but were drafted in the second round in 201
Jack has never missed a game in his three seasons and started 42 games in the regular season (the last 34 in a row). He has 219 tackles, five sacks, two fumble recovery and an interception. He also has 16 tackles, a sack, a trapping and a fumble recovery in three playoff games.
Jack played all three linebacker places as a rookie in 2016, but was permanently transferred to the middle linebacker in 2017. He has already earned his place in Jaguars history with his game in the AFC Championship Game after this season. Jack ran down the Patriots, who ran away from Dion Lewis, kicked the ball off as he tackled him, and jumped up and handed him back for a touchdown that gave the Jaguars a 17-point lead at the start of the fourth quarter. The referees, however, blew up the game dead after recapturing the ball because they believed it had been knocked out of contact.
