With Kyler Murray the latest quarterback to receive a major contract, let’s see who’s next to make a profit this year or next. (Or maybe not at all.)

Lamar Jackson.

The Ravens quarterback resisted the team’s attempts to secure a long-term deal for months. Now he wants to get his second contract. The matter is complicated by the fact that he does not have an agent. He said that contracts signed by other quarterbacks don’t matter to him, which is a prime example of why he desperately needs an agent. These other deals become a precedent for his own, a bar that he must strive to meet or exceed.

It’s hard to separate the team from yourself when it comes to getting a fair contract. Some players are being brainwashed into thinking that they owe it to this larger effort to leave excess meat on the bones. Other players recognize that it is their duty to themselves and their families to maximize the value they get from playing football because they have very little time to do so. They have no stake in the business. They only have what they can squeeze out of the property and hide in the bank.

Yes, it’s a team sport. But there is definitely a “me” in the team when it comes to ensuring that full and fair value is generated by a player who has earned every penny he has earned and who has the right to claim as many pennies as possible from the owners who have the money. burn it down and buy superyachts.

Russell Wilson.

Deshawn Watson used the quasi-free agency he swindled for himself into a brand new market deal. Wilson, who only had one place he really wanted to play if not Seattle, didn’t take the opportunity to ask for more on his way out the door.

And this is a smart move, because after the 2022 season, he will get even more.

With the richest owner to date willing to buy the team, and the team giving up so many trading assets to get Wilson, he’ll get a market value deal after the season. Most likely, it will be completely guaranteed.

Is there a chance that injury or inefficiency will damage his values? Yes, but it’s thin. In essence, the Broncos have come to terms with the fact that Wilson will get a monstrous deal the moment the deal goes through. By not doing it now, they know they will pay him even more later.

However, there’s a chance the Wal-Mart clan decides to make Wilson an offer he can’t and won’t refuse before the start of the 2022 regular season. Again, it will be cheaper to do so now than next year, and the terms could be so favorable to Wilson that he won’t want to risk an injury or poor performance tarnishing his value next year.

Joe Burrow.

His window to a new contract opens at the conclusion of the 2022 regular season. Barrow has already earned his second deal. Who knows? He could become the first young quarterback to receive a second contract after the final game of the regular season and before the playoffs start if the Bengals make the playoffs again.

Barrow may face pressure from locals to “charge less”. I hope he won’t. He changed this franchise. He deserves everything he can get. If they want to keep it for a long time, they need to change their behavior – and they may have already changed, given that they are finally selling the rights to the name of the stadium.

However, it can be difficult to get a fully guaranteed deal if owner Mike Brown just can’t put a giant pile of money in escrow. Perhaps Burrow will be the first quarterback to tie his compensation to a certain percentage of the cap. That way, as he grows, he gets more – and his contract never expires.

Justin Herbert.

Two great years, no playoff spots. It does not matter. He is already considered one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. If the Chargers want to keep him, they’ll have to pay. Presumably after the end of the 2022 season. If they don’t, someone else will gladly do it, now or later.

Jalen Hurts.

The Eagles have given mixed signals, publicly and privately, regarding their commitment to the Hurts. The commitment to a 2020 second-round pick appears to have been made when the Eagles traded for wide receiver AJ Brown.

Here is the question. Will the Hurts deliberately make a tier two deal to ensure the Eagles always have a cohesive team around?

The fact that he was not selected in the first round would rather put an end to his long-term status. He will become a free agent in March 2024 unless the Eagles apply the franchise tag. His performance this season will go a long way in helping the Eagles determine his future value. Then the challenge will be to be on the same page as Hurts.

Tua Tagovailoa.

It is also entering its third season. After it ends, he will be eligible for a new deal. This is the best way to realize his potential and take full advantage of the help he will have around him.

However, if he doesn’t step forward, he may end up looking for his second NFL contract elsewhere, either if he is released after the 2022 season or if he becomes a free agent when his four-year rookie contract expires.

Baker Mayfield.

He has a one-year contract with Carolina. If he performs well, the Panthers will certainly want to keep him. Others will be interested.

Surprisingly, Mayfield’s multi-million dollar haircut that Mayfield did to oil the Cleveland skids didn’t include a promise from the Panthers not to apply the franchise label next year. If he does well this season, he could find himself tag-locked on the open market.

Jimmy Garoppolo.

If he doesn’t sign a long-term contract as part of a move to a new team, Garoppolo will become a free agent in March. Therefore, it is extremely important for him to find a place where he can play – and play well – in 2022.

Daniel Jones.

The Giants did not exercise his option for a fifth year. The contract year of the top 10 peaks of 2019 comes into effect. If he becomes the guy the Giants thought he would be three years ago, he’ll get a long-term contract or franchise label.

Ryan Tannehill.

He has two years left on his current contract. He was absent from some off-season voluntary programs, possibly in an attempt to make adjustments. After this season, the Titans may have to make a long-term decision. Which could be one of the reasons why they chose Malik Willis.

Matt Ryan.

He has a two year contract as he enters his first season with the Colts. If he does well, the team may want to give him a big pile of money to ensure he plays for a few more seasons.

Tom Brady.

GOAT will become a free agent in 2023. He will be able to choose his next team without any restrictions. And with $37.5 million a year waiting for him from Fox, he’ll be able to tell anyone who wants him to keep playing that in order to get him, they’ll have to pay him more than he gets. don’t really play.
