In this week’s podcast I mentioned putting a video together looking at how to value trades for veteran players taking into account the contract values of the veteran and draft picks plus the expected performance levels of the players, so here we go using a potential Aaron Rodgers trade as an example. I didn’t realize that a side of the screen got sliced off when doing a quick edit but I think it should be ok to avoid having to re-upload it.
I thought I would have a little fun with making up a strategy that would maybe allow a team to make a contract offer to Ravens QB Lamar Jackson that the Ravens would have a difficult time matching despite a low salary cap hit this year. The NFL has all kinds of rules about franchise tag offers and what can and can not be included so who knows they may have some hidden line in the CBA that doesn’t allow this or an interpretation of the contract that would not allow it but I figure it’s a fun exercise anyway.
With so many questions about why the Packers are trading Aaron Rodgers and how it works on the salary cap I put together a video that walks you through the numbers for both sides of a trade.
With the numbers out on the Lattimiore contract, I wanted to put together a video looking at how the deal stacks up with the top corners in the league, how the guarantee structure stands out, and a look at how the salary cap will play out on the contract.
In this weeks video I take a deep dive into Jamal Adams record setting $70 million contract extension. I’ll discuss the cash breakdowns of the contract, potential escape points, the pros and cons of the guarantee structure and how the contract compares with a few of the bigger deals in the NFL.
This week I take a closer look at the recent $72 million contract extension between Jonathan Allen and the Washington Football Team. In the video I’ll take a look at where he ranks statistically among the top paid DTs and how his contract stacks up with others in the market.
Decided to do another video this time ranting about the Jets while explaining a bit about salary offsets in a rookie contract and the likelihood of it really making a difference.
