JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -The Jacksonville Jaguars gave defensive tackle Rob Meier a bigger contract to go along with his bigger role.
Meier signed a four-year contract extension Thursday. He is replacing three-time Pro Bowler Marcus Stroud in the starting lineup this season.
Although financial details weren't immediately available, Meier said the new deal would pay more than the $2.1 million he was due in the final year of his previous contract.
Meier's deal also came two days after teammate and defensive end Paul Spicer failed to show up for the team's first voluntary workout of the offseason while seeking a new contract.
