Reports came in on Wednesday that the Jaguars are giving Robinson a three-year, $54 million contract extension. The move ties Robinson to the team through at least 2024 before the team can release him.
Robinson has been the Jaguars' starter at left tackle since his rookie season in 2015. He has 61 starts but has missed 21 games in his five-year career.
Jaguars fans are content with the move since it ties down their offensive line for the next couple of years. But general NFL fans aren't pleased with how the team has massively cranked up the offensive tackle market for what they perceive to be a good, but not great tackle.
With Cam Robinson tied up beyond 2022, it seems unlikely that the Jacksonville Jaguars will use their No. 1 overall pick on an offensive lineman in the NFL Draft now. Some speculated that they might use the pick on a top offensive line prospect like Evan Neal or Ikem Ekwonu
Now it seems all but certain that the Jaguars will go defense with that pick. Specifically, they'll likely go to one of the elite pass rusher prospects like Travon Walker or Aidan Hutchinson.
But the Jaguars have a lot of different needs to address. It'll be interesting to see where they go tomorrow.
Do you approve of the contract extension Cam Robinson got?
