Earlier this month, Jacksonville Jaguars star quarterback Trevor Lawrence was given a massive new contract to keep him with the team for the foreseeable future. And it sounds like Lawrence is optimistic about his future with the team for one big reason – everything he’s experienced up to this point.

During a recent interview with Albert Breer of Trevor Lawrence opened up about how he has learned and grown from everything that he has experienced throughout his career up to this point, even the mistakes and not-so-good parts.

“I think that experience is probably the best teacher,” Lawrence said. “Everyone says the big thing is the ‘whys’ learned from other people’s mistakes. I do think that’s true. But I also think there are some things you just kind of have to go through. And you learn a lot when you experience them. I’ve been through all the mixes. A terrible season. A season that started really bad and we finished really great, which was 2022. And last year was the opposite, started great and finished really bad.

“So I’ve experienced all those elements of it, and I understand how this game works. The NFL is just different. It’s a long season; it really is about who’s playing best in December, January, February, not September, October, November. You have to be playing your best at the right time, the end of the year. I think I have a better perspective of all of that. I’d say that’s the biggest thing.”

Lawrence joined the Jaguars in 2021 as the No. 1 overall pick and has since blossomed into a polished veteran. We’ll have to see how he performs this upcoming season – the first on his new contract.
