Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Meyer is eyeing a huge sum of money in order to fill any vacancies in the NFL. To make it clear, he said that Urban Meyer wants $12 million per year.

The Jacksonville Jaguars, who own the first overall pick in the 2021 Draft, have been rumored as a possible landing spot for Meyer. They're widely expected to take Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, regarded as a generational prospect, with that pick.
