Former Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo sues organization over alleged Urban Meyer incident, per report

The Jacksonville Jaguars are still handling the Urban Meyer fallout that humiliated the company in 2015. Josh Lambo has actually brought the Meyer catastrophe to the leading edge as soon as again, taking legal action against the company as he seeks his $3.5 million wage for 2021, plus damages for psychological distress.

Per the Tampa Bay Times, Lambo’s claim declares his efficiency suffered as an outcome of being kicked and verbally abused by Meyer in 2015. It likewise declares Meyer and the Jaguars developed a hostile workplace — and the occurrence impacted Lambo’s capability to sleep, practice, and perform his task the method he was accustomed to in his previous 7 seasons. Lambo missed out on all 3 of his basket efforts in 4 video games prior to he was launched in October. 

Back in August, Meyer supposedly kicked Lambo as he was extending with his colleagues at practice prior to the group’s last preseason video game versus the Dallas Cowboys. 

“I’m in a lunge position. Left leg forward, right leg back,” Lambo informed the Tampa Bay Times in 2015. “Urban Meyer, while I’m in that stretch position, comes up to me and says, ‘Hey Dips–t, make your f–king kicks!’ And kicks me in the leg.”

Lambo missed out on a basket effort in each of the group’s very first 2 preseason video games, which triggered the supposed occurrence to take place. Lambo reported the occurrence to his representative, who notified the Jaguars’ legal council. The Jaguars provided to speak to Lambo, however “there was no recollection of being able to speak with the legal team.” 

“It certainly wasn’t as hard as he could’ve done it, but it certainly wasn’t a love tap,” Lambo stated back in December. “Truthfully, I’d register it as a five (out of 10). Which in the workplace, I don’t care if it’s football or not, the boss can’t strike an employee. And for a second, I couldn’t believe it actually happened. Pardon my vulgarity, I said, ‘Don’t you ever f–king kick me again!’ And his response was, ‘I’m the head ball coach, I’ll kick you whenever the f–k I want.'”

Meyer has actually stated that Lambo’s characterization of the occurrence is “completely inaccurate.”

“(General manager) Trent (Baalke) and I met with him on multiple occasions to encourage his performance, and this was never brought up,” Meyer stated in the Tampa Bay Times short article from December. “I was fully supportive of Josh during his time with the team and wish him nothing but the best.”
