Jaguars Last Offer to Derrick Harvey was $16.8M Guaranteed

Harvey

The Florida Times-Union is reporting that the stalemate between holdout Derrick Harvey and the Jags is all about the money that the Jaguars have not upped since July 28th.  The report says that the team hasn’t changed the offer since the end of July, and that offer was for $16.885 million in guarantees.

That amount is close to $1.4 million above the $15.445 million that Keith Rivers of Cincinnati got in the ninth spot.  Word is Harvey’s agent, Ken Kremer, has made an offer that is about halfway between the 7th and 9th picks.  The Jaguars’ base package offer of $21.140 million is about $1 million more than Rivers received and their maximum offer of $33.64 million is $8.6 million more than Rivers’ max package of $25 million, but much of it is tied to 70 percent playing time.

    I think this is bullcrap already sign the damn thing or see you in next years draft which he might not do so good in. No rookie defensively even DE needs a contract that big especially the fact that most defensive players end up on their asses every down for like a year or so cuz all those veteran linemen know what your doing they can read you easy. Even if he signs a contract now he missed an entire training camp and half the pre season. He is becoming a thorn in the jags side i was happy to see him go there but now this is rediculous
