Branden Albert might want a reunion with the Jaguars, but the feeling is not mutual.
The team on Tuesday released a statement saying they have mutually agreed to place the two-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle on the club’s reserve/retired list following a meeting with him on Monday.
He deserves to be paid, Mara said via ESPN, and we’re going to pay him. … I just don’t feel like there is any need to rush into it.
But he’s going to end up getting paid at some point.
In a video post Thursday on UNINTERRUPTED, Beckham said, I believe that I will be hopefully not just the highest-paid receiver in the league, but the highest-paid, period.
Mara admitted he could not imagine a situation in which a wide receiver becomes the NFL’s highest-paid player. But Beckham is still due a big pay raise when his rookie contract expires after the 2018 season. OBJ is making an average of $2.6 million per season under the deal. More than a dozen wide receivers will make more than $10 million this season, led by Steelers wideout Antonio Brown ($17 million).
I have a lot of room for growth. I see potential for myself that I know that I can (fulfill), but I need to do it consistently to be where I want to be, which is one of the best to ever play.
Todd Downing was promoted from your quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator this offseason. How is that transition going to him now calling the plays and how do you guys work on that during the preseason so it comes off without a hitch once the games are for real?
