Solid benchmark for Beckham if we're wondering what his deal will look like.

He'll get a little more than Evans, but it should be in this type of ballpark.
Good to have a blueprint

Let's see if OBJ gets his deal sooner now that this is out there.
$16.5 AAV  
JonC : 3/9/2018 3:54 pm : link
OB should be ~ $18M AAV in the end.
Will support Beckhamís argument

For $20 million a season.

My guess for Beckham is 5 years, 90M.

Obviously the guarantees, bonuses, etc. will all be impossible to predict - but I think that's what the core numbers will look like.
6 years for $100 million and fully guarantee it if you have too

For OBJ... but wait until a year from now
Still very young...

If you pay him next year... The price goes up. And no team in the NFL is fully guaranteeing 100M. Crazy talk.

LOL, no NFL team on this planet is handing out a 100M contract that is fully guaranteed. Ridiculous.
smart of tampa  
Mr. Nickels : 3/9/2018 4:10 pm : link
to extend him now after a down year
Mike Evans is the guy who led some people to believe that  
GeofromNJ : 3/9/2018 4:11 pm : link
Johnny Manziel could play quarterback in the NFL.
After his injury last night, OBJ likely wants to get paid now  
mfsd : 3/9/2018 4:11 pm : link
or as close to now as possible. Iím sure heíll skip OTAs again, and I donít think a training camp holdout is beyond the realm.

Giants can tell him and his agent he needs to prove heís healthy and back to 100%, but thatís a dicey game to play if we want him fully committed to the team, not just himself
last night = last season  
mfsd : 3/9/2018 4:12 pm : link
Bizarre typo there genius
Trouble is, Giants donít have cap room to pay him  
mfsd : 3/9/2018 4:15 pm : link
starting this season, unless they make some big cuts or he agrees to reduced rate in early couple years of deal
If we are paying that or greater for Beckham...

I really hope we draft Barkley.

We aren't going to be winning shit anyway so we might as well be fun to watch.

Especially the Giants. The Mara family will not be the ones to completely ruin the NFL owners leverage over the NFLPA. Once there is a fully guaranteed contract, there is no turning back as the next guy after that will want a fully guaranteed contract as well, and the next one, and soon eventually they will all be fully guaranteed. That is going to piss all of the owners off if teams start offering full guarantees.

You are not wrong in that.

So, looking at these deals based on the percentage of the cap, when Antonio Brown signed last year, his deal was for 10.18% of the salary cap (then $167 million.)

Evans' deal with the new cap ($177.2 million) is for 9.31% of the salary cap.

If one projects Odell to be better than Evans, but just slightly below Brown, this would put the ask at 9.74% (splitting the % difference) assuming the salary cap for 2019 goes up by the same percentage it did this year (6.11%). This translates into a yearly deal of $18.35 million.

I see some fans/posters have had a sticker shock when they see the $20 million number. But when you project future NFL revenues/salary cap and the percentage of the cap his WR peers are signing for, his request actually makes reasonable sense.
Have any details of the structure of the contract come out?

It's pointless to talk numbers without knowing the specific cap impact.
Evans is in a group  
RetroJint : 3/9/2018 9:36 pm : link
A notch below Beckham . Brown, Jones & Beckham . Those 3 are in a class by themselves . If Gettleman waits until next season, he might lose Beckham . Thatís why he was let go by Carolina. He fucked up some contracts . Itís not always about talent evaluation or roster building .
