Jaguars will pay $3.65 million of Joe Schobert’s 2021 salary

The Jaguars will play both Gardner Minshew and Trevor Lawrence in their preseason game vs. the Browns, but while the two compete for the starting position, Mike Florio sees this as an opportunity to market Minshew.

Linebacker Joe Schobert will make $7 million in guaranteed salary in 2021. More than half of it will come from his former team.

Per multiple sources, the Jaguars will pay $3.65 million to Schobert as part of the trade that sent him to Pittsburgh for a sixth-round draft pick in 2022.

Why $3.65 million? It’s exactly half of what he’s due to make this year, factoring in $300,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

Schobert exits Jacksonville then with $18.15 million for only one season of football. He started all 16 games in 2020.

Schobert, as one source explained it, also converted $2.36 million of his remaining salary to a signing bonus, in order to shrink the cap charge for 2021. The balance of Schobert’s contract remains unchanged, with non-guaranteed salaries of $8.75 million in 2022, $10.25 million in 2023, and $10.75 million in 2024.
