It’s a record-breaking deal that came just months after the Jags got one done with Josh Allen.

In April, the outside linebacker signed a deal worth $150 million over 5 years. It made him the first $100 million player in franchise history. Lawrence tops Allen’s record-setting deal, becoming the first player to have a $200 million contract in Jaguars history.

If you break it down, the contract includes $200 million guaranteed and $142 million at signing. Lawrence received a $37.5 million signing bonus and is expected to make $55 million annually.

The deal starts in 2026, meaning Lawrence will be under contract through 2030, making him the face of the franchise for the 2020 decade.
