If Beasley messes around and have a good year get ready

45 posts in this topic

So they tack on an additional 3 years to the 2 years he already had remaining. 

So we get to see him versus McGary for the next 5 seasons.

It’s his last year regardless imo. If he blows up we can’t afford him, if he doesn’t we don’t want him. 

Say he somehow pulls 20 sacks or near that out of his *** somehow, would you then think of resigning him instead of letting him walk? He’s also clearly dominant nearly every game in this hypothetical and not just getting lucky sacks.

I hope he has a great season. But I also hope he doesn't Sam Baker us in a contract year before reverting back to previous underwhelming performance. To be honest, if he stands out and we add a third or fourth round comp pick after losing him in FA, it wouldn't be the worst thing.

I dont' want him either way.  Dude is too inconsistent and hasn't shown anything special.  I'm fine with letting other teams deal with him in the low odds that it all clicks for him (after this season).

If it all clicks for Vic you better believe TD will find a way, or at least try, to keep him. Only QBs are more coveted than pass rushers. We would probably have to let Neal walk, possibly Hooper and part ways with Rico, Sanu, Free, and Tru.

Haters are going to hate,, But the haters don't run this team...  but smart people do run this team.. What ever they do will be the right thing. But you can be sure that if Beasley has a solid season,, He'll be kept on this team. Like it or not,, your not going to be the person to say he stays or goes.<_<

Tag him and make him do it again.

Should have taken Cam, Houston or Wilkerson with one of the five picks we traded for Julio in 2011. Not to mention taking Gurley over Beasley in 2015. Might have had a better chance in 2012 and 2016.

I mean, he did get 15.5 sacks in 2016 

In what everyone who isn’t a blind homer calls a fluke season

This is one aspect of nfl contracts i don't get... instead of having Beasley on a 1-year $12m deal, why not give the extension for 2 years and front load the cap hit... it would essentially be the same thing, but at least if he balls out you still have him under team control.

Well the front office is just being smart,, Not only is it good money for Vic,, But It gives him incentive to play hard this year so he can get a long term deal next year.. I think he will take advantage of the situation.  And have a great year.. not just because he decides to.. But because he wants to be a great player and he wants a great long term deal and to be a life long Falcon.. I believe it will happen.:rain:

Because players won't play out the contract years in that sort of scenario.  The player would insist on a new, multi-year deal (force a trade if necessary) rather than playing out the 2nd year.

So in that scenario, the team would take all of the risk (paying out so much the first year) but would receive none of the reward (below market contract in year 2).

For this reason, "team friendly" contracts will always back load the big payday rather than front load it.
