Short of him going on just an insane run from here on out, there's no way he is going to command a huge contract. Well it won't be $45-50MM/year, I'll agree with you there. But it depends on your definition of a "very friendly cap number" -- if you're hoping for $8-10MM you're in for a disappointment. Not unless he's looking a lot shakier in the upcoming games, in which case you're not thinking of him as the franchise QB anyhow. If he's good enough for him to establish himself as a franchise QB - in your words - then he's going to cost plenty. The reason is if the Jets won't pay him like that then someone else will. Right now JD would be bidding against himself, and coming off a huge game or two is the worst time to get a deal done. Also consider there's such a thing as too good of a deal (especially after a rookie contract's up). Then the player just holds out at the time that inflicts the most pain upon the organization; that's the player's leverage. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
