Former Alabama OL Cam Robinson re-signs with Jacksonville Jaguars
In March, it was reported that the Jacksonville Jaguars planned to keep Cam Robinson on the franchise tag. Friday, Robinson made it official, signing his franchise tender.
According to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco, Robinson will be receiving a big bump in pay in Year 5. Robinson made $1.422 million for the 2020 season on the final year of his rookie contract. On the franchise tag, Robinson will make approximately $14 million in 2021.
Robinson has spent all four of his professional seasons in Jacksonville after being selected in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Jaguars. Robinson has played in 47 games, starting all at left tackle.
Jacksonville’s decision to franchise tag Robinson was widely criticized a month ago. It appears Urban Meyer is placing a high priority on having an experience left tackle on the line for likely new QB Trevor Lawrence.
