QB market is getting stupid and NFL needs to shut hyperinflation down somehow.
Lamar is a running QB. They have a half-life of 4 years. Slower and slower and slower.
The show-me-the-money players need a severe reset of the market.
Hopefully Purdy, Geno Smith can show that winning teams can occur with affordable talent. Link

the 133 million was the guaranteed money
Yep. Such a Browns' move.
Exactly. Paying 1 player 1/3 of your cap is stupid.
It was a $260 mill deal with $133 gtd...
If you go to a link within the link, it clarifies that it was 250/5 with 133 guaranteed.
I'm thinking that is reasonable, but will quickly be eclipsed.
Because they are making it look like they tried so they can tag him probably the non exclusive and take the picks
The last thing you want to do as a GM is propose a contract for what someone has done in the past vs what you think they can do in the future.
Have you read the thread at all? It has been pointed out that the $133 mill was his guaranteed money on a $260 mill extension.
I know people really don't like him, and he does say some foolish things, but I think this was a Colin Cowherd idea.
You would think with all the turd recent contracts of Wilson, Murray and the Cleveland Groper, GMs would learn. But of course not.
I feel that Barkley, for as good as he may be (my opinion only) , has reached his expiration date. RB’s generally have a short shelf life. He might take less $$$ than he might get other places. Let’s roll the dice on him and concentrate on OL, DL, maybe a standout WR and very late P who is consistent!
