The Jacksonville Jaguars have the most cap space in the NFL right now, even after big contracts to Malik Jackson and Allen Hurns handed out over the past few months... and that's largely due to some very, very cap friendly deals that general manager Dave Caldwell has been able to sign with players.
ESPN recently wrote about who they believe has the most cap friendly contract for each team. For the Jaguars, it's no surprise: Kelvin Beachum.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Kelvin Beachum, LT
ACL surgery led Beachum to accept a one-year deal with a four-year team option. The Jaguars got a left tackle to push and possibly replace Luke Joeckel, and they got Beachum while committing only $1.5 million in fully guaranteed money.
If and when Beachum takes over the left tackle position and makes former first-round pick Luke Joeckel expendable, that'll be a massive value for a starting left tackle in the NFL, even if his full money-making opportunity in 2016 is $5,375,000 according to Spotrac.
Beachum's full earning potential is just 2.8% of the Jaguars' adjusted salary cap of $190,301,710 in 2016.
Do you think any other Jaguars player has a more cap friendly contract than Kelvin Beachum?
