Shad Khan has not become one of America's greatest success stories, being stupid.
The Jaguars owner is aware that the quarterback Jalen Ramsay wants is avoiding because he believes the team does not view him as the best player in the league in his position. The Jaguars owner also realizes that there is a very simple way to make him believe that the team views him as the best player in the league in his position: Make him the highest paid player in the league in his position.
This is a simple approach to solving a thorny problem, and Ian Rapoport of the NFL announced Friday that Han is ready to do so.
It won't be that difficult to do. As explained on Friday, a six-year, $ 77.7 million offer puts Ramsay at $ 15.1 million a year in new money, leaping to Miami at Xavier Howard's corner ($ 15.05 million a year) and Washington backer Josh Norman ($ 15 million a year) ) for the title of highest
Of course, Ramsey may want more than that. Norman gets his $ 15 million a year as a free agent, making it a real $ 15 million a year. If Ramsey wants six years and $ 90 million, that pushes the new money an average of $ 18.1 million a year.
But, hey, if it's necessary to make Ramsey happy, it's necessary. And if after a few years he is not happy with the fact that others have skipped it and he decides he wants a new deal, then give it to him – if he is still the best quarterback in the game.
