Trent Baalke says contract discussions with Cam Robinson are ‘moving in the right direction’

The Jacksonville Jaguars weren’t shy about giving out cash this offseason, which consists of handing Cam Robinson the franchise tag, which will cost them over $16.6 million. However, the group would choose to get a long-lasting offer made with him, as this offseason marks the 2nd time that they’ve tagged him.

During the owners conferences, this offseason, Jags coach Doug Pederson informed the media that the hope was to get Robinson a long-lasting offer, and on Friday, fans got more information on the circumstance. According to basic supervisor Trent Baalke, conversations with Robinson and his representative are relocating the ideal instructions, though a timeline on an offer wasn’t mentioned.

“The first part, we’re continuing to work and have had some great discussions with Cam [Robinson] and his agent, so I think that’s moving in the right direction,” Baalke stated when inquired about an extension upgrade and whether it affects the draft. “We’re going to continue to move down that road and see what we can get done.

“As far as preparing, we’re looking at who can help this football team the most. Some people have said we have Cam tagged so we’re not looking at the tackle position, I wouldn’t go down that road. Right now, everybody’s fair game as far as this draft is concerned and every position.”

Fans have long grown annoyed with the Jags’ failure to keep their high draft choices, so this is excellent news for those who wish to see modification. Luckily, the Jags have up until July 15 to get something settled, so there is an excellent little time to work out.

While the Jags went into the offseason requiring to boost the offending line, Robinson was among the much better gamers on the system. In the procedure of taking 856 offending snaps, he signed up a 76.6 pass security grade according to Pro Football Focus, which is an excellent figure to have on Trevor Lawrence’s blindside.

The most current huge offer that Robinson’s representative might utilize as a guide is that of Terron Armstead, who just recently signed a five-year offer worth as much as $87.5 million with $43.37 million ensured. Robinson isn’t rather the pass protector Armstead is however, so possibly choosing something around the rate series of what Garett Bolles got is a much better plan (four-year extension with $40M ensured).
