Jaguars to Pay $3.65 Million of Steelers LB Joe Schobert’s Salary

Published

on

The Steelers were not only able to acquire Joe Schobert to help boost their linebacker production, but they were able to do so with his former team paying a significant portion of his contract.

Even though Pittsburgh will now see the benefits of Schobert’s play, Jacksonville will still pay $3.65 million to Schobert to complete the trade that sent him to the Steelers for a sixth-round draft pick in 2022, according to a report by Pro Football Talk.

The $3.65 million will end up being half of what the 27-year-old linebacker is scheduled to make this season. That includes his per-game roster bonuses.

Schobert was a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns out of Wisconsin in 2016. After four seasons in Cleveland, Schobert joined the Jaguars on a five-year, $53.75 million free agent contract.

Schobert started all 16 games in each of the last two seasons and has played in a total of 77 games in his career, with 65 starts. He’s been his team’s primary starter as a middle linebacker in each of the last four seasons.
