Jaguars 2014 rookie salary esitimates

New, comments

Curious how much the Jacksonville Jaguars rookies will make? We've got estimates.

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted nine players in the 2014 NFL Draft. Under the new collective bargaining agreement (CBA), rookie contracts run more along a "slotted" system and are more static than they were in the past, so the negotiation of the total deal is almost nonexistent.

This means we can figure out how much money the rookies will be getting on their initial contracts, via Over The Cap:

2 Marqise Lee $2,082,924 $940,731 $1,175,913 $1,411,095 $1,646,277 $5,174,016
2 Allen Robinson $873,360 $638,340 $797,925 $957,510 $1,117,095 $3,510,870
3 Brandon Linder $533,600 $553,400 $648,900 $739,400 $829,400 $2,771,100
4 Aaron Colvin $453,152 $533,288 $623,288 $713,288 $803,288 $2,673,152
5 Telvin Smith $211,052 $472,763 $562,763 $652,763 $742,763 $2,431,052
5 Chris Smith $187,252 $466,813 $556,813 $646,813 $736,813 $2,407,252
6 Luke Bowanko $94,052 $443,513 $533,513 $623,513 $713,513 $2,314,052
7 Storm Johnson $62,728 $435,682 $525,682 $615,682 $705,682 $2,282,728

Under the current CBA the Jaguars will have these players under contractual control until after the 2016 season, which is the earliest the players and the team can begin talking about a new deal. Bortles will also have a fifth-year option, due to being a Top 5 pick, will pay the average of the top-10 players at the respective player’s position.
