Before they begin the 2022 draft with the No. 1 overall pick, the Jaguars have announced an important piece of business.

Jacksonville announced on Thursday that the club has exercised edge rusher Josh Allen’s fifth-year option for 2023.

The Jaguars picked Allen at No. 7 overall in 2019 and he’s been a major contributor for the team ever since. He recorded 10.5 sacks for the Jaguars as a rookie, earning a pro bowl selection. He missed half of the 2020 season due to injury.

But he had a solid rebound season in 2021, recording 7.5 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, and 14 quarterback hits in 16 games.

By exercising the option, the Jaguars have now guaranteed Allen’s $11.5 million salary for 2023.

  1. Not only does he deserve to get paid based on his play, he is one of the nicest people you’d ever want to meet.

  2. 2nd best QB with a last name of Allen in the league and best QB on the Jaguars roster. 😉
