In an update to our previous story, wide receiver Christian Kirk's new contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars is a four-year deal worth "up to" $84 million according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Holy cow!  It sounds like the base level is a slightly — emphasis on slightly — more reasonable $72 million, but it is still backing up the Brinks truck and making a 25-year-old wideout who has never had a 1,000-yard season one of the highest-paid receivers in the league.  It's a function of desperation, and a receiver market picked clean by franchise tags and re-signings. Kirk is downgrading both teams and quarterbacks in moving to Jacksonville, while new coach Doug Pederson never oversaw a 1,000-yard campaign by a wideout in Philly.

Somewhere in Green Bay, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams has to be licking his chops.
