Christian Kirk, former Texas A&M star WR, reportedly signs massive contract with new NFL team
Christian Kirk has spent the first 4 years of his NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals after he was a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Now, though, he is apparently moving east ahead of the 2022 season. As NFL free agency gets going this week, Kirk is reportedly heading to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kirk is expected to sign a 4-year contract worth up to $84 million:

That’s obviously a ton of money for Kirk, who is coming off his best season. He recorded career-highs in catches (77) and receiving yards (982) in 2021 and also had 5 touchdown grabs.
Now, he’ll be paired with QB Trevor Lawrence, the 2021 No. 1 overall pick. We’ll see if he can eclipse the 1,000-yard mark for the first time this fall.
