On Saturday Tom Coughlin and the Jaguars decided that paying Julius Thomas $8.3 million to be on the team was better money spent then the $6.6 million it would have cost to set him loose. Well, enter the next phase. The Kelvin Beachum’s conundrum.
If the Jags keep the left tackle. He will be owed $7.5 million base salary in 2017 and $8.5 million in 2018. Coughlin's bringing Thomas back was all about value and cost benefit analysis. With the 2017 draft class week at Tackle and until the Jags find a left tackle for the future this will be another cost/valeu decision for T.C.
