No reason to trade him.

he has to show up and play well or he kills his future earning potential.

he has no real leverage.

nope he has all the leverage. Now teams are going to low ball us knowing he wants out and if he goes crazy or even has a regular Chandler Jones year he damn sure ain’t resigning and we’re going to lose him for nothing or if he does resign it will be for more money than we could of gotten him for before the season.

SK screwed those up royally

unlike you I don’t want him for more than 2 years anyway. He’s too old.

if he plays well we franchise him for a second year.

he has no leverage.

when did I say I wanted to give him a long term extension?

yes if you franchise him your paying him top 5 for a pass rusher and that’s a huge raise...like I said could of had him cheaper

Acceptable risk. I think he will be mediocre this season personally.

if I’m wrong you overpay him one season, no big deal. If not you let him go and aren’t trapped in some terrible 3 or 4 year contract.

this is what we’re doing now. Yeah he got paid to rehab the injury he sustained playing for the team.

I’ll never understand the average mans rush to side with management
I always admired Junior Seau's perspective. When asked if he wanted the team to rip up his current deal and extend him he said "No. I signed a contract for an agreed amount. Once the deal is over we can talk about a new deal."

and look what Junior Seau got for his troubles. Died broke and killed himself because the CTE literally drove him crazy.

the worst possible example to use he’s the example why these guys should go after ever dollar they can.

NFL teams no have no problem ripping up a contract when a player isn’t useful anymore they damn sure don’t honor those contracts lol

I hope we can keep him but if he actually does want to be traded it IMO will be tough to get much value because nobody really knows yet how recovered he is.

Hopefully they can smooth this over the defense appears to be built on the assumption the pass rush will make it easier for the secondary, so losing one of our best pass rushers would be problematic.

And the team has him under contract and don’t need to accept low ball offers. I highly doubt he’ll sit out and lose game checks. If he goes out and has a big year and then leaves for more money, then so be it. Beats giving him a huge multi-year contract and hoping he will get back to form after missing most of last year.

Gee Finito, maybe the average man does not get million dollar paychecks and not allowed to tear up their own contracts :raccoon:

That’s why they have guaranteed money. Looking at anything else is stupid and I guarantee you good agents only focus on the guaranteed money. And you bet your **** that’s negotiated. In fact it’s likely the core element of the negotiations.

but NFL teams are also allowed to tear up those same contracts it’s the nature of the business. Right? Exactly.

I’ve never in my life said oh that guy has more money than me he should do business like this or like that. He’s not doing anything out of the ordinary for the business he’s in.

Nothing to see here as far as I can tell.

Even the wording of the tweet makes it sound past tense, as if it was a none starter. Seems just the usual negotiating tactics.

It's a tough one for Keim. On the one hand you have a guy who has been a star in the previous 4 seasons. On the other you have a guy who is 31 coming off injury who looked really poor in his 4.5 games before that injury (1 sack, 1 TFL against some poor opponents).

From CJ's point of view the Cards ride him hard. Barely rest him at all in games. Which at 31 leaves him open to injury with no G money left. It's his last big deal.

I don't think there is any obvious side in the right and I wouldn't be surprised to find that Keim is offering CJ a fair deal in the circumstances but CJ just wants more than he is probably now worth.

Melvin Ingram is only 10 months older than CJ and was allowed to hit FA and sign a 1 year $4m deal. While Ingram was never the sack monster CJ is he has been a superstar D lineman for many years. JJ Watts is a year older and a bigger star in the NFL than CJ has ever been was cut and signed for $14m per.
