Unless he returns to school which I can't imagine he would.
He could pull an Elway/Eli though and I wouldn't blame him to be honest.
If the salary cap were to go down, could Trevor Lawrence possibly make more money by waiting?
If 2021 is a down year and then TV contracts are signed, and 2022 goes way back up, I'd imagine Trevor Lawrence could stand to lose $5-10 million coming out in 2021.
Combine that with the long term contract prospects of playing for the Jets vs another team.
That all depends on how the salary cap negotiation goes. If NFL takes the hit all in one year (disastrous), or is able to get the NFLPA to spread it out over many years.
Of course he'd want to take out an insurance policy on himself.
This is based on my understanding that the rookie wage scale is proportional to the current-year salary cap.
