I don't think it's possible to do quite honestly. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I believe if he were to sign the franchise tender the 1 year contract becomes fully guaranteed and would be money we'd have to eat if he was traded.
Some of you may be under the impression that we could franchise him and then sign him to a long term deal for another team but again guaranteed money will always be a factor. He will not sign a long term contract without a large signing bonus(guaranteed money).
You have to remember any "guaranteed money " stays with the team that signs the player even if traded. Huge reason why we had to take a big hit when trading Beason and can't trade Stewart even if we wanted to.
If I am wrong someone please explain it to me and do you have any examples to cite in the past?
