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

51 posts in this topic

He'll get paid his money for sure. It won't be this insane, but he'll get it. $60 million, my guess. Guys have different definitions of "proven". Hardy has had one season already, with no defensive tackles, that would make teams pay him.

Given that the cap is flat and there will be tons of free agents, he won't get a huge contract on the order of some of those mentioned unless it is somewhere else.  Look at Chris Long last year with a 5 year, 60 million contract.  This offseason the money went down and next year it will go down even more.  The days of the huge contracts are done until the cap goes up.

 

I am concerned that we won't get a contract done as his agent will hold out for too much and want to shop around.

 

Now that I said it, he will sign tomorrow.

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

 

if talking about tagging.

 

If Cam is franchised it means his 5th year option was picked up....which means he and Luke's rookie deals run out at same time.

What about the possibility of a shorter deal with more of a % guaranteed money.  Does that ever happen with a player in his situation?  Basically is it long-term deal or bust?

don't all top 10 (or is it 15) come with the 5th year option automatically built in? or it might even span all 1st rounders. it'd be a question to ask one of the contract dudes or jones/person

“If a player is picked 1-10, then the 5th year option is going to be the average of the top-10 players at the respective player’s position.  So, if you’re quarterback and go number-two in the Draft, then your fifth year option salary will be the average of the top-ten quarterbacks.  The option is exercised after the third season, so it would be based upon the top-ten quarterback salaries at that time.  If you’re picked 11-32, then the 5th year club option is the average salary of the top 3rd through 25th player in that position.”

 

found it. yeah all 1st rounders have a 5th year option built in
