Could be. JAC already the best winger in the NRL imo. The only thing against him is can his style work in a struggling team without top halves (Foran not being fit of course). The Ferguson and Sivo mould of winger might be smarter to get if we're going to spend that sort of money (but who?). That's debatable tho and I'd personally pay JAC up to 700k. Ferguson is currently the highest paid winger on 500k (leaks, rumours, w.e.). Just if we have competition it's going to take that sort of money. Again personally I'd much rather JAC on 700k than Thompson. So if we've done it for Thompson I don't see why we wouldn't for JAC.
JAC is about the 5th best winger in the comp.. I'd easily take a Tupou, Fergo, Maumalo before him.. I'd even take a Corey Oates over him.. besides when he first came onto the scene, we haven't seen him play outside of a good system at any level... how would he fair when he is not playing outside of the best setups? he is not as valuable when the team is on the back foot like some of those other guys. Yeah that's the style of winger I believe can command the higher figures.. the guys who make the big meters and are a handful for opposition.. I'm happy to see how our current guys go over the next few seasons.. we need to remind ourselves that Meaney has only played one full season, and Jayden not even that... they both have potential
