Breaking Down the Jaguars 2009 Salary Cap

ESPN’s Insider section just did a full-scale blowout about the salary cap for each and every team around the league. Here’s what they had to say on the Jags:

2009 Salary Cap: $137,034,267
Player with Highest Cap Number: QB David Garrard ($9,000,000; 6.6 percent of cap)
Highest Cap Number for a Player No Longer with Club: WR Jerry Porter, CB Drayton Florence, Paul Spicer ($2,500,000 each; 1.8 percent of cap each; tied for 16th-highest on club)
Player Who Has to Live Up to Cap Number: DE Derrick Harvey ($7,527,500; 5.5 percent of cap; second-highest on club)

Harvey got a late start to his rookie season in 2008. After a long holdout, Harvey finally came to a contract agreement with the Jaguars on the eve of their final preseason game. It is uncertain if the missed training camp curtailed the eighth overall pick’s rookie performance, but given the difficult negotiation and the financial investment, one could be assured that the Jaguars were hoping for more than 3.5 sacks (two of which occurred in the club’s Week 17 finale).
