Parker didn't lose in this, but he went the long, rough way when he could have easily got the same money as soon as TC had he sat down with the Niners. Instead of waiting 4 games into the season to get a million more. And lost his client valuable time with the team.
I think the Niners would have gone to as high as 18mil guaranteed, but to stand firm on 16mil and gave him 1 mil more is a win for the Niners after Crabtree have had enough of the impasse is a win for the Niners. Winning on the Niners side is paying less then how high you are willing to go for Crabtree, NOT the original number offered. That's just the starting point of the negotiation. We will never know how high Jed was willing to pay for Crabtree and neither does Parker.
Dude, he may have got 1 mil more, but at the expense of another year on his contract. Therefore his guaranteed money average is lower than the original offer, plus he hits FA later.
Can't ignored the fact that he did get 1mil more out of the Niners. Whether it was enough for holding out it's debatable. Like I said he could have gotten that without holding out.
It's not debatable:
$16 million guaranteed/5 years = $3.2 million guaranteed/year
$17 million guaranteed/6 years = $2.8 million guaranteed/year
Please explain your stance on this. Crabtree would have been earning more guaranteed per year with the original deal.
It's guaranteed money, a sure thing. Whether it over 5 or 6 years. It's secondary. I think that takes priority to anything that's in the contract or length of it. May be it's how you want to look at it. But to me, all NFL contracts through the year have taken guaranteed money as the major get for the agent.
