Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk played a monumental role in helping his team defeat the Tennessee Titans to clinch the AFC South division title.
If that wasn’t awesome enough to begin with, Kirk won himself a lucrative $1 million in incentives by hitting two special marks. Via ESPN’s Field Yates, Kirk earned $500,000 after recording his 80th catch of the season, and another $500,000 for surpassing 1,100 receiving yards on the season.
In the offseason, the Jaguars handed Kirk a massive four-year contract worth $72 million. The move was widely panned at first, since Kirk had never posted 1,000 yards in a single season. But GM Trent Baalke and head coach Doug Pederson obviously knew what they were doing from day one.
