Report: K Josh Lambo sues Jaguars over Urban Meyer’s work environment

Report: K Josh Lambo sues Jaguars over Urban Meyer’s work environment

Former Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo is suing the Jacksonville Jaguars, alleging that disgraced coach Urban Meyer created a hostile work environment that contributed to Lambo's on-field performance suffering, the Tampa Bay Times reported Tuesday.

Lambo alleged that Meyer kicked him and swore at him while he was working out last August before the Jaguars' preseason finale. Lambo's accusation becoming public in December was the final straw for Meyer, as Jacksonville fired him the same day, 13 games into his first season with the team.

"I'm in a lunge position. Left leg forward, right leg back," Lambo told the Tampa Bay Times. "... Urban Meyer, while I'm in that stretch position, comes up to me and says, ‘Hey Dips--t, make your f--king kicks!' And kicks me in the leg."

Now Lambo is seeking his $3.5 million salary for 2021, with interest, plus damages for emotional distress.

Lambo's lawsuit claims that he reported the incident to the Jaguars' legal counsel via his agent. He was released from the team in October, which Lambo claims violated a Florida law protecting whistleblowers in the private sector.

The Jaguars told the Tampa Bay Times that their legal counsel offered to meet with Lambo over the incident, but Lambo said that wasn't true.

Currently a free agent, Lambo played in 78 games across seven NFL seasons with the then-San Diego Chargers (2015-16) and Jaguars (2017-21). His career mark of 87.1 percent on field goal attempts ranks sixth in league history.

Meyer has not caught on with another NFL or college team since his ouster from Jacksonville. Reports late last month said that he was deep in negotiations to return to a broadcasting role with Fox.

Report: Tom Brady’s un-retirement threw NFL schedule into upheaval

Report: Tom Brady’s un-retirement threw NFL schedule into upheaval

A team of people and computers have a massive task every season: create as "fair" an NFL schedule as logistically possible. And do it within a system that can produce literally trillions of possibilities.

But as the Los Angeles Times reported Monday, that lengthy process had to essentially be done twice this offseason, thanks to the retirement and un-retirement of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady earlier this spring.

"When Tom Brady retired, we were concerned about the strength of the NFC package because there were so many terrific Tampa Bay games we were looking at," NFL executive Howard Katz told the Times. "Then a month later he un-retires and we sort of started all over again."

The NFL has taken a slow drip approach to releasing its 2022 schedule. After finalizing and releasing opponents for each team on Jan. 20, the league revealed on April 22 that it will hold its first ever Christmas Day triple-header this season.

The teams tabbed for those games, as well as the league's international contests and other special event games, are expected to be leaked over the course of this week prior to the full schedule release Thursday.

On Monday, the league revealed that it will hold two Monday Night Football games during Week 2 action Sept. 19. The Tennessee Titans will visit the Buffalo Bills before the Philadelphia Eagles host the Minnesota Vikings in the nightcap.
