NFL kicker reportedly sues Jacksonville Jaguars, claims Urban Meyer created 'hostile work environment'
Urban Meyer’s tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, the Jaguars might have to pay up for an incident that took place under his watch.
According to Rick Stroud with The Tampa Bay Times, former Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo is suing Jacksonville for his $3.5 million salary from the 2021 plus damages for emotional distress. Lambo appeared in 3 games and was released by the team in October after starting the year 0-for-3 on field-goal attempts.
Lambo’s lawsuit claims Meyer and the Jaguars created a hostile work environment. Lambo previously claimed Meyer kicked him while stretching while telling Lambo “Hey Dips–t, make your f–king kicks!”
According to Lambo’s lawsuit, Meyer’s actions negatively impacted his performance:
“Mr. Meyer’s hostility had the intended effect on Mr. Lambo, resulting in Mr. Lambo uncharacteristically missing difficult and long kicks from the ranges of fifty-five yards, fifty-two yards and fifty-eight yards,” according to the lawsuit.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out with Meyer now out of coaching.
