    Especially Balt.'s owner, which is paramount in this case, obviously. I stated this all along. I knew Steve was NOT onboard with the fully guaranteed deal, he expressed it as soon as Watson's deal was made.

    yeah.. that is about what I expected for Lamar and I think someone will bite
    eventually.

    I think based on contracts he isn’t wrong to want more than Watson guaranteed over the life of his contract but that would mean signing 6 or 7 contract or even a 10 year contracr like Mahomes.

    Personally I would settle for anything $200 or above in regards to guaranteed money if I was Lamar. I think that is fair.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    sounds to me like he's going to get a contract with some roster bonuses down the line that he'll never see, in an effort to call it "guaranteed"

    and somehow, i knew D.Watson's contract was the target to beat...

    it should be. That is exactly how any agent would approach an NFL team if they were Lamar’s agent.

    I think I've been pretty consistent over the years siding with players in their contract fights. Short windows to make money and it's always tougher to get those who are holding the cash to give it up. Having said that, I think most if not all of the NFL regard the browns organization as foolishly run, amateur hour with a revolving door at HC and QB and perennially in desperation mode. It would be stupid to let a stupid run organization making stupid contracts set the new standard. That's why I think Lamar is struggling to beat DW's numbers.

    Most teams are not as stupid as the browns - though some try really hard.

    I would think an agent would point out to him that watson had refused a trade to the browns at first.

    the only way he accepted a trade to them was this incentive of a guaranteed contract.
    i wonder if lamaar even knows that

    Lamar should be approaching the Ravens and comparing his value to DW. And the Baltimore FO should be responding with "we are not going conduct our business like the most dysfunctional franchise in the league".
