Are we willing to pay 35 million per year for Cam?

Recommended Posts



I wouldn't pay Cam that much unless he has a great season in 2019. Doesn't need to be 2015 MVP level but it needs to be good enough for us to make some sort of playoff push. Since 2015 he's had 2 so-so seasons and one decent one. 

Whatever the status of his injury, the truth of the matter is since the 2015 season we've won a grand total of ZERO playoff games. That is 3 seasons in a row with no progress whatsoever and that unnaceptable no matter who is at fault.

If we finish 2019 and don't win at least 1 playoff game, I wouldn't blame Tepper for blowing up everything and starting from scratch.

None of them are worth that much money. This cap thing hasnt gotten completely ridiculous.

 

Technically they are worth what the market says they're worth but I agree these prices (in regards to the total cap) are redonk.

No, pretty sure this is the make or break year for Cam and RR.

after 3 straight seasons of no playoff wins after a SB appearance and dissapointing the owner with a 7-9 dumpster fire his first year with the team, I have to agree.

Tepper will probably create his own regime from scratch if we have another losing season this year. I bet all the coaches and players know that.

This is how the circle will complete itself. Teams with average lower paid QBs with running games/defense will have a more complete team and beat the teams with 50 million dollar QBs with nothing else on the team to compete with teams who can actually field a competent team at most other positions.

QBs $$ value will decrease then it'll happen all over again.

in two years, thats probably a pretty fair offer if he is still playing well. 

Wilson's extension is 4 years added on to this season, so really a 5 year $157M which if you compare to Matt Ryan, is a better deal.

This is the one argument where I agree with those clamoring for a QB in this draft. It would give that QB 2 years to develop in case we cannot sign Cam to an extension due to the asking price with the injury concerns. I would still wait until next draft or at the earliest the 3rd round comp pick. If we waited until next year we could always Franchise tag him to give extra development time. Also if he balls out and stays healthy, then absolutely you try to re-sign him.

I would probably try the franchise until his replacement is in place.  No way on a long term deal with that shoulder.

 If he can lead us to the Super Bowl while doing it, then 35 mil is certainly within reach, if not a certainty.

Everything changes if we win a super bowl with him. Then 35M becomes the expectation.

I,would say north of 40 million a year after its said and done is what he is going to command. Prices are going up like crazy and bad teams have record cap.

Nope. It MAY level off, but I doubt it. 

It's super basic economics. 

There are more teams than there is good quarterbacks. 

There will always be teams desperate for QBs.  They are the ones that truly control the market. All other teams HAVE to be willing to pay as much as those teams do, or lose our on their franchise QB.  

Until the supply of capable quarterbacks goes up in relation to how many teams, qb contracts will continue to go up.
