or 120% of their current salary, whichever is greater. Exactly like the franchise tag, except top 10 vs top 5.
But the possible advantage would be that another team could set his market value, while still giving us a chance to match? If the offers he gets from other teams are 2 years/30 mil....then it might work in our favor. If another team offers him 4 years/100 mil..then we would get some kind of compensation?

If he is offered 2/30 from another team, why would he take it if he can get 1/25?

Not saying he would...just saying he would get to see his offers...if any...from other teams?

Rather than letting he and his agent tell us his market value, wouldn't there be some advantage to letting him see his value while we are also trying to negotiate a new deal with him?

Again, no way to know...but IMO had we used the transition tag on DJ Humphries, there would not have been a single team in the NFL that offered him 15+ million a year like we did. I think he would have gotten offers in the 6-8 million per year range, and then we could have said...we are offering 9...and made a much better deal?

Again, Im not a cap expert, but it seems like there are some advantages to the transition tag when you are trying to work out a new deal.

There definitely are. Not just in this case.

That would be the guaranteed money, not the total contract value. The total contract value was mentioned as $33.5 million.
I sort of look at contracts as guaranteed money is the only money that counts. . . Sure the rest matters, but if a player is earning "incentive money" both the team and player are going to be satisfied!

yikes, no way you pay big money for this kinda performance. Donald, an ass as he is, is on an island all by himself.

There's 3 free agents I mentioned that are much cheaper, younger and higher ranked in that chart than CJ; Dante Fowler/Randy Gregory and what would be my favorite acquisition Emanuel Ogbah - soo potential, batted passes galore. Give me a cheap high risk/high reward in Fowler and a rising young player in Ogbah for the price of 1 CJ all day (not sure if that can be had though - someone might splurge on Ogbah).

I was going to be ok with 2 and 30, but he disappeared way too much as the season went on, and became more of a liability than a threat.

We have so many holes to fill, you'd hate to create another one, but paying Chan real money looks like a huge mistake as well.
