Good for Wilson.
Good pick up

He’s a much better option than Lynch at this point.
That is a lot of money

He ran for a 1000 yards. What do you mean?

Also it's probably not a lot guaranteed. Its usually incentive laden when they report it as "up to".

I’m not a Hyde fan but $4m isn’t much at all. RBs don’t make a lot of money which this contract illustrates. It allows them to ease Carson and Penny back and not have what happened last year - have 2 guys go down and then completely lose the functionality of your offense.

Agree on that
Sounds like he lost a bunch of money

By turning down 2 year deal.

Not if he plays well this year. New CBA coming, 1 year deals for 2020 are going to work out well for a lot of players that can produce and avoid the big injury. And without knowing what the guarantees are that Texans deal could have effectively been a 1 year deal anyway.

A lot of "ifs". And with NFL taking major finance hit this year, contracts next year maybe lower. Plus, he has a lot of competition in Seattle. May be tough to "show himself".
There’s a lot of 1 year deals out there  
UConn4523 : 5/23/2020 1:24 pm : link
the biggest “if” is not getting hurt too badly but other than that revenues will go back up next season anyway.

If Hyde’s offer in Houston was 2 years $10m with $5-6m guaranteed then it’s effectively a 1 year deal anyway, one that he wouldn’t be able to get out of it he performed well.

And he would have made a lot more money with that deal. Hence he lost a lot of money compared to an "up to" 4 mil deal. Not sure why you can't understand that.
Haha  
UConn4523 : 5/23/2020 2:30 pm : link
well you clearly don’t know how NFL contracts work.

Looking at RB deals most of them only get 50% guaranteed, some less, so it was likely a 2 year $10m deal with $5m guaranteed, tops.

He instead makes 25% less this year and gets to hit FA again when the new deal is signed which by all accounts will increase the cap regardless of COVIDs impact. He also gets to play in a run first offense.

So yeah, he’s betting on himself a bit but has the potential to greatly increase his future earnings. He didn’t “lose” anything unless he gets hurt and can’t get a good deal next year, which I already discussed.
No, you are obviously clueless  
ZogZerg : 5/23/2020 6:58 pm : link
to think he didn't lose any money.
Are you like 10 years old?
Wow.
“Am I like 10 years old”  
UConn4523 : 5/23/2020 7:31 pm : link
hhmmm, interesting way to ask that question.

I just provided an example of the typical mid-low level RB contracts and why he hasn’t lost money yet and your responses to date have been that of a 10 year old.

You either didn’t read anything I said or are being purposely dense because you can’t own up to not knowing what you are taking about. If you can provide an adult response Id be shocked.
Dude - you are the one being dense  
ZogZerg : 5/24/2020 9:23 am : link
He could have had 10 Million for 2 years.
Now he has "up to" 4 million.

SO, to get just to the 10 million to match what he TURNED DOWN, he needs to earn ALL 4 million PLUS get a contract for 6 million next year.

He had ALL of LAST year for a "prove it deal" with an ideal RB situation and had his chance at 10 million for the next 2 years from his team. NO OTHER TEAM offered anything close to that THIS time. ZERO ZILCH

Yet, you think he will have some "magic" year playing for Seattle where he will be competing with a number of RBs. AND then some team will offer him at MINIMUM 6 million dollars just to match what he turned down. And you think he didn’t lose any money because you “understand” NFL contracts – LOL!

Dude, you are dense and clueless if you believe he didn’t lose out on money by turning down 10 million dollars.
