Meyer and the Jaguars have been unable to reach an agreement, according to USA TODAY Sports. Meyer signed a five-year deal worth $10-12 million each year, but the Jaguars are unlikely to pay him because he was fired for cause, according to reports.
“When you lose the respect, the trust and an issue of truthfulness, how can you work with someone like that?” Khan told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s not possible.”
