The oft-overlooked leader of the Jaguars, Lawrence is perhaps one of the greatest current examples of the disconnect between box score scouting and actually watching him play — which is part of what makes this deal so great for Jacksonville. Lawrence’s contract will end up being worth $40.4M in Average Annual Value (AAV) when accounting for ..read more
