NFL teams are free to begin making their pitch to free agents Monday ahead of the new league year beginning Wednesday.
Kurt Warner Womens Jersey Quarterback Kirk Cousins is among the biggest names on the open market after the Redskins opted to trade for Alex Smith instead of re-signing Cousins. But the Pro Bowl QB may benefit from Washington’s decision.
Youth Paul Richardson Jersey Suh wasn’t even the NFL’s best defensive tackle during his Dolphins run. Aaron Donald of the Rams has proven far more disruptive in the same time span while playing on a much cheaper rookie contract.
While the Suh tale should be a cautionary one for other clubs entering free agency this offseason, it won’t be. An excess of cap space for most teams combined with limited talent on the market will ultimately lead to buyer’s remorse like with a Dolphins squad now saddled with $22 million in dead money.
The six-year, $114-plus million package that was reported, which defined Suh for the entirety of his Miami tenure and will stick to him for the rest of his NFL career? It actually lasted half as long and paid just over half that total. As former front-office executive and agent and current Sports Illustrated analyst Andrew Brandt loves to point out, these deals are more like James Shields Womens Jersey three years and we’ll see.
It’s that time of year for spectacular numbers to spread to the corners of the NFL universe, with free-agency beginning Monday with negotiations now permitted. But it’s also the time of year for teams to shed the non-guaranteed and always-initially unreported portions of those monster contracts to be lopped off for cap purposes 锟斤拷 to get out of the very loose obligations to the players, and to make room for more loose obligations to different players.
Had Sherman taken the prove-it option, he would have been 31 when hitting free agency in 2019. That would be one year older than Darrelle Revis was when he signed a $14 million contract with $39 million guaranteed with the Jets in 2015. Sherman also would be one year older than Nnamdi Asomugha was when he signed a $12 million-per-year contract way back in 2011 with $25 million guaranteed at signing.
