Why would there be incentives? Hes getting $6.5 mil total no matter what

Then I must of misunderstood. His base is $1mil win us. Does that mean Jax is on the hook for the other $5.5?

I believe so because of the structure of his previous deal he was cut from. He was getting paid atleast $6.5m total this season, The Jags would be responsible for the offset money (remaining dollars) from what his new deal is. 

So we paid him $1m, the Jags are responsible for the other $5.5m. If there were for some reason a bidding war (not likely with this scinario) and some team paid him $5m then the Jags would be responsible for the remaining $1.5m

Yes it works out with this offset language in contracts that Jacksonville would have to pay the difference between what he signed for and the $6.5 million in his contracts offset money.
