After adjusting the above contracts as if signed at Beckham, Jr.'s current age (25), a linear regression is performed, providing us with the following initial value.
6 years, $93,780,822 at an average of $15,630,137.. Sign me up twice over for that.. I assume he will ask for more..
Looks like this is factoring in  
Keith : 2/9/2018 1:10 pm : link
the lost games due to injury this season which lowered that number. Iím sure his agent isnít discounting for that.

This contract is a steal for the best WR in the game who is 25.
He wonít like it.

He'll be made the highest paid WR until the next guy is up.

He's not going to be the highest paid player.

No-brainer. NYG will get this done.
$18M per is the likely ceiling  
JonC : 2/9/2018 1:20 pm : link
There's no precedent for $20M.

I don't think he signs for the proposed deal.

So itís 5 years 138+ mil or nothing
Most people understand the cap nowadays,  
Keith : 2/9/2018 1:39 pm : link
the total value is really meaningless, its the gtd amount that matters.

I think he'll get somewhere around 6-100 with an enormous amount in gtd, more than half.

that everyone WANTS to be the highest paid player? No one goes into a contract negotiation for their 1st major payday thinking they are going to take a sweet discount, especially not after CTE, etc.

I'm sure Antonio Brown wanted to be the highest paid player in the NFL as well...
He might ask for something similar to Von Miller....  
Keith : 2/9/2018 1:56 pm : link
Miller got 6-114 with 70M gtd. I can see him asking for a little more than that. Forget what other WR's are getting, he will prob want to be the highest paid non-QB.
AB's contract looks terrible  
Keith : 2/9/2018 1:57 pm : link
the totals are great, but his gtd amount is pedestrian. I think his agent messed that one up.
Maybe he takes 14m per

I think his age was a big factor. He was 28 when he signed it, Beckham will likely be 25 when he signs his. If you treat contract negotiations like depreciating assets (i'm sure they do to an extent) Brown lost some leverage due to his age.
28 is just the start of his prime.  
Keith : 2/9/2018 2:06 pm : link
When you look at the gtd numbers that most superstars are getting, AB's agent did him wrong. 70M, 60M, 55M, AB got 17M gtd. His contract is not a barometer for what Odell will be getting.
Especially with his injury

I agree with this. Davante Adams got $18 million of his $58 million guaranteed.
Def odd.

By the way, it's 19M gtd, my bad.

5-81 with 50M gtd. I think that's a decent baseline for what the GIants will TRY to sign OBJ for. 6-100 with 60M gtd, in that range.

Can we agree that Atlanta blew the SB last year and it was in their grasp. Can we agree that Julio isn't the reason that they lost? Julio is a top paid WR and they were minutes away from a SB. 2 years before that, Demarious Thomas won the SB as a top paid WR. The Patriots almost won with Moss, but I guess that shouldn't count because they didn't actually win.

I also wouldn't recommend looking at it like this. It's convenient if you are looking for reasons not to pay OBJ, but only 1 team gets to win. How many teams with top WR's get to the SB? Get to the conference championships? It's really unfair to just say how many teams WIN the SB with a high paid WR. Not to mention,
It's a lot of $ but I'm not sure  
mrvax : 2/9/2018 3:18 pm : link
OBJ will accept that. He'll want more than DeAndre Hopkins, IMO, and that would put the average salary to about 16.5M-17M.

Hopefully OBJ will recognize how much $ he can make in endorsements by playing in NY.
Not to mention,  
Keith : 2/9/2018 3:18 pm : link
there are plenty. Another issue with this theory is that NE has won so many of the SB's recently and we know how they build their team. Lets take them out of the equation...unless of course your plan is to sign the best qb to ever play with the best coach to every play. Otherwise, lets remove them from the equation. Marvin Harrison and Plaxico Burress were 2 more big time WR's that won a SB in the past 15 years.

Go do your own research and come back to us instead of asking everyone else to prove you wrong. You can't just say something and it's right. It's not. Look at the teams in the SB and it's littered with high profile, high money WR's.

Whatever he signs for, it will be a boatload of money. But...the Giants will be in better shape in 2019 by cutting Eli & JPP for a whooping $29.5M in savings. Pretty sure Abrams will be able to work things out.

Harrison and Plaxico were not bad at all. Odell is going to want much more than what Sportrac says he is worth. I know OBJ is better than Nicks and Cruz. Julio's game is as much about size as burst. OBJ is everything about burst/explosion. One soft tissue injury away from being a JAG. So no I do not believe in tying up a large percentage of cap/guaranteed money into a guy that has gotten injured. No way we should give a contract right now. Franchise him until you can't or trade him now for as much as you can.
Plaxico

Julio contract - ( New Window )
Why are we having this discussion ?  
Ron from Ninerland : 2/9/2018 3:48 pm : link
He's still under contract for another year, after that they should be able to franchise him for $20 mill or less. I'm not sold on OBJ lasting long in this league. We've seen Hicks and Cruz flame out and they weren't head cases. OBJ has been inconsistent and injury prone as well.
total gtd  
giants#1 : 2/9/2018 3:48 pm : link
Are you talking about Spotrac's "practical gtd"? Because the largest guaranteed deal excluding QBs and Suh is ~$43M. AB's is still ridiculously low, but that's a lot less than the $70M mentioned above for superstars.
re: $20M  
giants#1 : 2/9/2018 3:51 pm : link
the precedent for Beckham getting $20M would be the Von Miller and Suh who both blew away the previous max salaries for their respective positions.

Without the injury, I think Beckham could've come close to that. Now, especially if they reach an extension this offseason, I think you're looking at something closer to $18M per and $40-50M gtd.

Again, just because you say it, doesn't make it true. Harrison wasn't bad at all? Care to investigate that claim and show proof? It's all relative. If you are comparing Harrison to contracts now, then sure. If you are comparing him to other players of that year, you couldn't be more wrong. Harrison was paid big money.

Also, take a look at the top WR's in the game today and most are on competitive teams that are SB contenders. Oh, but it only matters who actually wins, got it.

We're having this discussion because the Giants, the fanbase, and probably everyone on the planet doesnt agree with your assessment. Sorry if the discussion seems trivial with your expert opinion.

Locking up a player before their contract expires can be a beneficial tactic for the team. Kicking the can down the road means that the (increased) market value will be the precedent for negotiations. If you are sold on the player than you almost always win by doing it a year early.

I.E. WORTH discussing.
Practical gtd is the amount  
Keith : 2/9/2018 3:55 pm : link
that's considered gtd. Von Miller for example got 70M gtd.

Front-loaded deals are not the great solution that many people think they are. By the end of the deal, the contract is already being surpassed by others at his position, and with most of the high-value years in the rearview mirror, it almost invites a holdout from the player to get a new deal, which means you never really benefit from the cheaper years.
Another one...

We can afford it being higher in a year or 2 when Eli is off the books and our QBs are Webb and/or another draft pick.

There is more than just the money. I am not a fan of tying up a large percentage of cap into a WR. Throw in that OBJ has some diva in him. He has acted a certain way(not that bad IMO) How is he going to act once he has enough guaranteed money to ensure his ancestors don't ever need to work? I would rather spend those dollar on OL or pass rushers.

Your philosophy has been proven wrong. Again, take a look every year at the top WR's in football and I would bet most are on contending teams. Too many things factor in to which team actually wins that you can't just say it's becasue teams are paying their WR's too much. AB has been paid as a top WR for years and for years they are legit SB contenders. Same for Julio. Dez was making top money when Dallas was making their run. Philosophically, you are wrong.

The real reason is that you don't like Odell and that's fine, but lets not hide that behind the money.
Fitzgerald  
Thegratefulhead : 2/9/2018 4:19 pm : link
Is still playing, his game is different than OBJs. If he had Fitzgerald's character and game it might be a little different. Still would not give him a contract this year. I would wait, try to get something we could live with next year. If not I would franchise him for at least 1 year rather than lock him up long term.
What does that mean.  
Keith : 2/9/2018 4:21 pm : link
Fitzgeralds character makes him more productive on the field? What is wrong with OBJ's character? I've witnessed some amazing acts of humanity from Odell off the field. His issue is with controlling his passion on the field. He does some immature things, but why are we questioning his character?

I like Odell. The reasons I would not tie him up long term are the reasons I stated. I would rather have dominant OL/DL than a smaller superstar receiver.
By the way,  
Keith : 2/9/2018 4:26 pm : link
yeah fitz has a different game and he's not as good as Odell. IN Odells second season(he missed 4 games his rookie year) he had a better season than Fitzgerald has ever had. Isn't that all that matters?

In 3 seasons Odell is averaging about 12 TD's per season. If he started his rookie season healthy, it would probably be 13 TD's per season.

yeah fitz has a different game and he's not as good as Odell. IN Odells second season(he missed 4 games his rookie year) he had a better season than Fitzgerald has ever had. Isn't that all that matters?

In 3 seasons Odell is averaging about 12 TD's per season. If he started his rookie season healthy, it would probably be 13 TD's per season. He's also averaging about 1375 yards to Fitzgeralds 1100 yards per season. Fitzgerald is a superstar. He's an awesome player and seems like a great dude, Odell is better at football.
Agreed.....What do you think is too much to keep Odell?
Good question,  
Keith : 2/9/2018 4:38 pm : link
I'd make him the highest paid WR, no doubt. Like any other position, he's only the highest paid until the next great one is a FA. I'm hoping to get Odell for something like 6 years, 100 Million total with 50-60 gtd.
Did He Really Say Highest Paid?  
Samiam : 2/9/2018 4:43 pm : link
Did he really say unambiguously that he wants to be the highest paid player in the league? He wasnít just shooting the breeze? I dont see any team offering that to him. But, I also think that he wants to play in a big market team like NY given his off the field activities

That is a lot of money, I want agree with you because he is so fucking good but I wouldn't do it. I realize it is not up to me and Mara said he wants to keep him. I think if he settles for that, we sign him. I think he is going to demand substantially more based on him saying he wants to be the highest paid player in the NFL.
It is a lot of money, but IMO,  
Keith : 2/9/2018 5:15 pm : link
you pay a lot of money for elite talent. I truly believe that he is the best WR in football and he's only 25.


Outside of Odell, our offense has been inept since he came into the league. Teams never had to respect the running game. Teams never really had to respect any other WRs/TEs on the field. Teams always keyed on Odell and he still put up better numbers than 99% of the league. He's just not stoppable. He's the only guy in the league that is a threat to score a TD from everywhere on the field.

sounds about right. Might be able to get him for less.

Listen...he is getting 8 this year. If we Franchised him the following year he gets say $17M...probably not that much.

If you sign him now...you get a discount for doing so. Look at Nicks, he never got paid. OBJ knows he needs to get his money NOW. He will take a discount to get it. One hit and it is all over.

His injury is so overblown  
UConn4523 : 2/9/2018 6:03 pm : link
it wasnít a ligament. All reports say it was a clean break. Broken bones heal well unless you are rushed back (Dez Bryant).

We shouldnít have traded him 2 years ago and we shouldnít trade him now. What funniest bout this suggestion is Reese and McAdoo would have gotten to use those supposed picks from Beckham which would have been awesome, right?

We have someone who structures great contracts and we arenít in cap heíll nor will be with a fully paid Beckham. Itís unreal how people donít see this.

There is this thing called a salary cap. It limits the amount of money teams can spend per year on players. So it is resource management. Putting a large cap number into a WR, considering how vulnerable they are when hit and how much they depend on their speed and explosiveness, we as Giant fans know they are one injury away from being out of the league. What if Nicks or Cruz had a contract like Odell wants? It isn't signing Beckham that makes it less likely we win a a SB. It is HOW MUCH we sign him for...How much is too much for BEckham...At what point would you say no?

Thegratefulhead : 2/9/2018 6:12 pm : link
Players are hitting low because of fines and penalties. Odell was hit low. What happens the next time he is hit low? He is great, he changes how the defense plays us. I get all of that. I love watching him. Very risky putting that much Cap/Gmoney into him.

ajr2456 : 2/9/2018 6:15 pm : link
argument is stupid. There's no direct correlation, just a lot of coincidence. You can do this with any position.

Take a look at the cap hits for QB's. Only 7 times from 1994-2016 did the winning team have a QB with taking up double digits in the cap hit.

Maybe we should have traded Eli for a couple of firsts before paying him.
Cap Hit - ( New Window )
There is always going to be a risk of injury.  
Keith : 2/9/2018 6:20 pm : link
With Odell and with every player in the NFL. This wasn't the kind of injury that makes you fear future injuries. You can't let elite talent walk away at 25 years old because of a freak injury that he's expected to come back 100% from.

You also can't let him walk away because of money when you are paying your 37 year old, twilight of his career, QB elite money. You let Eli go and sign Odell if you are that limited with money. The Giants aren't, but the point remains.

The next point is regarding the cap. It's not like the NBA, you can easily manipulate contracts in the NFL to make it work. The Giants have plenty of levers to pull to create money when needed, it shouldn't be a concern at all. Certainly not of a concern where you let a superstar go.

You know whats funny about that list? A large portion of those QB's probably made more money than 99% of the league, yet the cap hit may not say so. Why? Because the cap hit number can be manipulated in a number of different ways and it's the only number fans should care about. Average contract value means absolutely nothing.

In fairness, except in a year when a player collects his signing bonus, his cap number will never be lower than his cash earnings for that season. The signing bonus is the only element that gets amortized (which subsequently leads to the cap number being higher than cash earnings in the other seasons of the contract). So unless those QBs happened to receive a signing bonus in those seasons in which they won the SB, they didn't make more real dollars than their cap hit reflects.

Weíd have a 3-13 year like we just did, which is better than an 8-8 year whether fans want to endure it or not.

Thereís a risk even with trading, you can end up with another Flowers and no Beckham because you didnít want to fork over some cap room which is easily manipulated.

Performance bonuses, roster bonuses, converting bonuses to salary, adding years, etc...there are a number of different ways to manipulate the cap number and the player would get paid more than their cap dollar. The Cowboys have players who adjust their contracts yearly and see more than their cap number. Obviously they are robbing peter to pay paul and will eventually have to pay the piper, but teams routinely do these things to massage the cap number.

Shit, apparently you can funnel money through their charities to save money on the cap, lol.

Also, I can guarantee that this question was asked of both Gettleman and Shurmur in their interviews:

"How do you deal with Beckham if he continues to act out of control on the field and hurts the team?"

Their answer was a huge part of why each was hired. I doubt their answer was a shoulder shrug and a comment about how you gotta let dogs be dogs.

I keep thinking of how John Mara must feel when he watches his star player score a TD and lift his leg like a dog to piss, or get ejected for repeated fighting, or going on shirtless boat trips before a playoff game . He knows that's not the Giants way and not how the team wins titles. Believe it or not the Giants are historically one of the most successful franchises in NFL history, and their way of doing business does work.

I doubt that they are going to let some chucklenuts continue to act out like a petulant child and not toe the line of team before player, I don't care how marketable he is.

This is all the same reasoning that leads me to believe that Darnold is the prize of the Giants eye. That kid SCREAMS Giants type player.

If that was a question asked of them  
UConn4523 : 2/9/2018 9:01 pm : link

Michael Irvin put scissors to his teammates neck and was blowing lines 24/7. Cowboys did fine. Randy Moss caught what should have been the game winning TD in the Super Bowl.

a) What did Cam Newton ever do? He has a poor attitude sometimes when things aren't going well but I've never seen him get ejected for fighting or multiple 15 yard celebration penalties.

b) Ray Lewis actually did participate in killing someone. He turned state and then got amnesia knowing they were never really going to push the issue.

I find it laughable that some of you just overlook the baby shit that Beckham pulls. He is EXACTLY who Gettleman was talking about when he said he needs professional football players not men/kids who play professional football.

I actually only put the odds of Beckham being a Giants by the draft at 50/50. Trading him is EXACTLY the type of move that Gettleman wasn't afraid to do in Carolina.

reading that nonsense the first time.



He's like a MORE immature JPP. Good thing we tossed that money away.

Look I know it sucks- but you can't win with guys like that. Give me the guy who busts his ass 24/7 and isn't a looney toon even if he has less talent every single day.



Michael Irvin put scissors to his teammates neck and was blowing lines 24/7. Cowboys did fine. Randy Moss caught what should have been the game winning TD in the Super Bowl.

Cam Newton made it to a Super Bowl. LT worked out well for the Giants. Ray Lewis was a suspect in a homicide.



a) What did Cam Newton ever do? He has a poor attitude sometimes when things aren't going well but I've never seen him get ejected for fighting or multiple 15 yard celebration penalties.

b) Ray Lewis actually did participate in killing someone. He turned state and then got amnesia knowing they were never really going to push the issue.

I find it laughable that some of you just overlook the baby shit that Beckham pulls. He is EXACTLY who Gettleman was talking about when he said he needs professional football players not men/kids who play professional football.

I actually only put the odds of Beckham being a Giants by the draft at 50/50. Trading him is EXACTLY the type of move that Gettleman wasn't afraid to do in Carolina.



So because Ray Lewis turned state, you could win with him?

Gettleman did nothing like trading Beckham in Carolina. Nothing.

Post the proof.

Beckham has to grow up a little. To me that means focus a bit more and keep your composure. To you itís stop fighting with everyone, blowing off practice, and going on a coke binge.

Your depiction of him is so far out of touch that I canít take your stance seriously.
He didnít trade Josh Norman  
UConn4523 : 2/9/2018 10:27 pm : link
he chose not to resign him because he didnít think he was worth the money and was a product of the system. Couldnít be any different of a scenario, holy shit.
Those are comparable to Odell how?  
ajr2456 : 2/9/2018 10:29 pm : link
Steve Smith was 35 years old. Norman

Quote:
So either Norman had expressed his willingness to stage a messy, sit-out over the franchise tag, or the Panthers are/were really dubious about his abilities and long-term prospects. Or the franchise was feeling extra charitable, and knowing they couldnít deliver a big contract next year, and wanted to release Norman to get his money while he still canówhich Norman did by signing a $75 million deal with the Redskins immediately after being shown the door in Carolina.


So how does that compare to Odell? You continue to make shit up and dodge questions.
C'mon man...  
NYG07 : 2/9/2018 10:30 pm : link
Trading a 25 year old superstar receiver, arguably the greatest of all time through the first three years of his career is not comparable to cutting a formerly great receiver near the end of his career or pulling the tag on a 28 year old late round CB coming off his first year as a starter asking for insane money.
Trading  
mattyblue : 2/9/2018 10:42 pm : link
Odell is such a dumb idea. You will never get value. He is an absolute beast and takes over games. His is very charitable off the field, doesnít beat woman, doesnít carry around guns, do drugs etc... we struck gold when we drafted him. Heís gonna get a big contract and he deserves it. Luckily for us the bulk will come when Eliís money is gone. I canít believe people want to get rid of him because he gets emotional. He has a very good chance of breaking all receiving records. Why would you trade the best young WR in a pass happy league?
OBJ  
Dragon : 2/9/2018 11:37 pm : link
Is not going to sign for more than four or five years and he will at some point of this contract top the twenty million mark. There are a lot of great players in the NFL but being OBJ, playing in NY, his pre game and game performances are the greatest show in the NFL.

Itís not about anything more than a QB who just started what four games signed a deal for 27 million for five years. If your agent canít get the greatest performer in the NFL without a doubt in the biggest media capital of the world twenty million Feed Him to the Lions. Love OBJ but his market value and this teams CAP situation just donít add up to a good ending if he resigns. If you move many of the other CAP problem players it works but if you keep them and sign him welcome to CAP truly HELL.

Eli has had over a $20 million cap hit and not to long ago they spent $100 million on defense.

Bullshit. This team has a few outrageously overpaid players that do not earn it. Odell would not be one of them. He is not only by far the best player on the Giants, he is among the top 10 players in the league. You don't just ship off a talent like that for a few unknown draft picks.

I really don't understand why people are having so much trouble with this. I think they should bite the bullet now and move on from Eli but either way 2018 is likely Eli's last year with the team. So when Rosen or Darnold are making $6M a year and Eli's contract is off the books, it will be no issue whatsoever fitting Beckham in the cap. Not only that, you will be thanking the Lord that our new young QB has a guy like that to throw to.

argument is stupid. There's no direct correlation, just a lot of coincidence. You can do this with any position.

Take a look at the cap hits for QB's. Only 7 times from 1994-2016 did the winning team have a QB with taking up double digits in the cap hit.

Maybe we should have traded Eli for a couple of firsts before paying him. Cap Hit - ( New Window )



You know whats funny about that list? A large portion of those QB's probably made more money than 99% of the league, yet the cap hit may not say so. Why? Because the cap hit number can be manipulated in a number of different ways and it's the only number fans should care about. Average contract value means absolutely nothing.


In fairness, except in a year when a player collects his signing bonus, his cap number will never be lower than his cash earnings for that season. The signing bonus is the only element that gets amortized (which subsequently leads to the cap number being higher than cash earnings in the other seasons of the contract). So unless those QBs happened to receive a signing bonus in those seasons in which they won the SB, they didn't make more real dollars than their cap hit reflects.



Which will also happen with Beckham. Like Keith said the only number that matters is the cap number.

I'm as in favor of extending Beckham as anyone (maybe even more so), without qualifiers or what ifs. But with all due respect, I don't think either of you are really describing contract mechanisms correctly with regards to cap number.

All the stuff Keith mentions above is irrelevant except for the one thing he got backwards - converting salary to bonus (and only specifically in the form of a signing bonus, as I originally said) is the only way to amortize money across an NFL contract. All the other bonuses that Keith mentioned work just like salary in the year they're due. With that one and only exception of a signing bonus, it is not possible for a player to earn more real dollars than his cap number in any given season.

who are sleeping...

Eli Manning career stats as of week 2 2017:

Targeting Odell Beckham: 63%, 35-7 TD/INT, 111.4 passer rating

Targeting anyone else: 59.5%, 285-209 TD/INT, 79.9 passer rating.

Can you even begin to contemplate trading Beckham when you see this? I also believe Eli is a HOF QB. The proof is right here.

I am 30 so I never got to see LT play...but for my generation Odell is LT. He is that good. Pay the man and he will help us win a Superbowl in the future

If you are suggesting that signing Beckham somehow makes it less likely that they win a Superbowl that is idiocy, if that's not the suggestion then the argument itself is meaningless nonsense. Which is it?


The answer to your question btw is just this past Sunday. The Eagles signed two big ticket WRs last offseason.
Odell  
Dragon : 2/10/2018 9:08 am : link
Is not the real issue itís the other players grossly overpaid that present the CAP problems going forward. Each year in theory the CAP goes up but these players contracts also increase plus who will be the next overrated player they resign. These players have a much higher dollar value of themselves then realistic but they keep getting paid you have to stop that.

In reality in FA how many players have earned the big contracts signed by the Giants, Strahan, Barber, Eli his first extension, there are a few others but due to injuries or whatever for the most part itís a loosing process. These players for the most part last three to five years in the NFL the odds after that decline drastically. FA Itís a flawed system why continue to use something thatís proven to be flawed over and over?

So because other players are overpaid weíre going to get rid of Odell? Youíre not making any logical points.

Keith : 2/10/2018 10:54 am : link
I understand what you are saying, but you are missing my point. Example, you have a contract worth ..6 years-102 million with 40 gtd. On average, that player makes 17M per, but his cap number could be:

Year 1: 8M
Year 2: 12M
Year 3: 15M
Year4: 22M
Year 5: 25M
Year 6: 28M

So in year 4, the player converts his salary to a signing bonus and adds 2 years and his cap number never touches the average salary of 17M per. Maybe I did s poor job of explaining what I meant,but thatís my point.

Your argument makes no sense. So what is your solution? Playing money ball and flipping vets for draft picks to have a team full of players on rookie contracts and cheap vets?

So just because the Giants have given out bad contracts in the past they should just avoid giving a massive contract to the one player on the team that absolutely deserves it?

obviously the same part that you don't seem to get is that compared to a lot of teams we are definitely not well under the cap and after we sign our draft choices we might have enough money for one decent FA.
