Paying Greg Hardy

Recommended Posts

Have we (or Hurney rather) painted ourselves into a corner by paying C.J. so much? Hardy has more sacks this season already than Johnson did in 2010 and will likely want similar money, which he obviously won't get with the new GM.

Can we please worry about these things when they actually need to be worried about? We have Hardy at least through 2014, so we've got time.

Are you insulating that somehow Johnson is overrated? Wow, I've heard it all 10.5 sacks and 7 FF. 29.5 sacks in a three season span.......

I would think it'd be more economical to try to extend him this offseason, before he goes and has another monster season next year, then his contract runs out and it's up to the highest bidder. Of course, that'll be tough with the way our cap is looking this coming year but if they can work it out to lock the Kraken up for another 5 or so years for less than what we'd have to pay him in 2014 it'll be worth not signing a mid-tier FA or two.

First we've got figure out how to keep Chud from getting a head coaching job!

Then we have to prevent Cam from going to a bigger market, then we have to prevent Kuechly from going to another team.

keep his cage fairly clean and give him live chickens and pigs to chase down and eat (of course you quit feeding him on Wednesday so he's really hungry on game day) and he'll be happy.

charles johnson's contract had a huge signing bonus that resulted in a really big number that media outlets could sling around (omg 6 years/$76 million and he's not julius peppers jared allen or dwight freeney wtf is going on here) but his cap hit is actually not overly cumbersome. it's actually on the mid-low end of the scale for a-list passrushers like the aforementioned. johnson's cap hit was $11 million this year and should be $13 million next year where as allen's was greater than $15 million and will go above $17 million next year. peppers' cap hit was $12.4 million this season and will reach $16.4 million next year.

This guy gets it. If there's anyone we need to get locked up long term before he's a FA it's Hardy....
