Spotrac's Greg Hardy Contract Forecast(Bigger than CJ'S deal)

Recommended Posts



I do not think it is likley Hardy is going to take less than market bc he logged onto The Huddle.

 

 

 

you think it's too late to get a mod or OP to edit the link with a more team-friendly number?

My prediction?

Gettlemen "overpays" him.....everyone is stunned just like they were when he drafted a LB, RB, etc despite us having virtually no picks. A week later people find ways to endorse it as smart and something Hurney wouldn't of done. Doesn't have to be that number but in the CJ ballpark

Yeah I'm sure Gettleman is chomping at the bit to hand out a contract larger than CJ's, lol sure.

Discount don't exist.

 

Discount in the fact that he gets paid a year early.  Doesn't risk and injury playing this year on a 1.7mill contract.   That's one of the reasons deals like this get done early..but who knows.  Some players want to gamble for big FA payoff ...some don't.

He deserves to get paid but we shouldn't sacrifice the entire team for him. I love him but him playing across from CJ helps him immensely.

lol..  for real though, you have to replace magic with magic...  expensive RB/LB for cheap LB/RB...

We'll be drafting jadaveon anyway so let him walk.

 

Jadeveon will have a torn ACL midway through the season...

We can only have so many huge contract players but I think the D-line is the best place to sink tons of money besides the QB position. 

 

Now, that's not to say I'd be happy with a deal that huge.  There are different variables every year.  If that website had done the same thing when CJ was getting his what would the contract have looked like?   We overpaid by quite a bit because there was a strong market for DE and Atlanta was a leader in wanting CJ.  Those are the two reasons we overpaid.  

 

With Hardy, it's a year before his contract is up.  The market isn't the same as it was when CJ got paid.  We can still use the franchise tag on him and almost get out cheaper to pay him that over 2 years after this year.  He's making almost nothing now.  Next year would be around 11 million for the tag and 13.5 or so for teh year after.  So, in essense it's the same as resigning him on a new 3 year deal for 25 million and none of it except the present year is guanteed.  He get hurt at any point we can cut him and only owe him that years salery. 

 

That's our leverage and why Hardy will not get an 80 million dollar contract. 

 

There is no one else except Cam we would franchaise and we would not have to do that for another two years.
