That won’t get it done. When season’s done, I bet he ends up with something like 11.5 sacks and that will look sexy enough for some team to throw the boat at him.
Agree. But he is about a 12mil guy right now and he plummeted fast.... likely an 8mil guy next season and a 3.5mil guy the year after that.

No way would I give him more than 3-$30mil ..... I like Jones but if he wants more than that I’ll take the free third round pick

If he doesn't fall off the cliff the rest of the season and does well in the playoffs, simply franchise him. He'll be expensive in the short term, but you'll get the best of the rest of his short career, or get a huge draft pick payoff if someone signs him.

If I remember correctly, Chan was willing to take less to stay in NE before been traded. Don't think it will take much to keep him with the way team is trending. I'm willing to bet he would cherish a Superbowl win with Cards more than the one he got with Pats.

Here are our last 5 3rd round picks..

Josh Jones
Zach Allen
Mason Cole
Chad Williams
Brandon Williams

Two are out of the NFL. Cole has been and is a starter in the NFL but every one here was down on him. Josh Jones and Zach Allen are contributing this year, but nobody is all that high on them going forward.

Assuming we make the pick. Comp picks can be traded and often are on draft day.

This. There will always be one or two teams who think they can be challengers but need to upgrade their pass rush who will be willing to pay Chandler.

Broncos have a tonne of cap space. As do Chargers. A guy with CJ's record will find someone who will take a punt on him returning to form.

I still thing the most likely outcome is the tag if we keep him. But our cap situation isn't great so they may let him walk.

3 years 36 Mil with 20 mil guaranteed would do it I would think.

John Franklin Myers is getting paid more that that.

He'd be edge #23 in the salary rable.

Seems like dreamland. I'm certain he will command $18m at least. If not 20m.
