We have a few guys needing extensions soon.
Goldson this year, then after 2012 Walker and Lee are musts, Sopoaga could go either way, then after 2013 Justin Smith, decide on Tarell Brown, also have David Akers and Donte Whitner up after 2013, would love both extended after 2013, then we need Bowman that year too, and Iupati and A,Davis.
Bowman should be in the 40M range, I can't see the team handing him near 60M we gave Willis. I would do a deal through 2017, so an additional 5 years onto 2012 season
Goldson could be between 30-35M over 5 years (Through 2016)
Iupati will be a larger contract, hoping in the 35M range over 5 years
Whitner would be a lower contract, not too low, but maybe 4M a yr over 4 years, so 16M total
Davis would be 25M deal over 5 years
J.Smith would be a deal averaging 6M While Akers would be 2-3M average. Lee will be 2.5M a yr.
Of course dont/cant do it all in one year, thats why there is a cap, so we can spread things out, maybe do Lee now this year when things are settled with Goldson's new deal(hopefully).
was wondering when resident GM AB83 was gonna show up and put this thing to rest...
Yeah, good stuff AB. Nothing would make me happier than to keep this team together for the next 5 plus years.
I agree AB=WZ God
But....Whitner 4 year extension? I'm not so sure about that. Maybe 2.
Akers, J.Smith shouldn't be hard to get extended considering they will be really old by the time we need to do so. I don't see this team letting Bowman walk
Thanks guys, It shouldn't hard to get these guys extended, we have a few long term deals on the books, but Willis' bonus money will be gone after 2012, so that frees up over 12M in cap space over the next 4 seasons after 2012. Of course Bowman is signed through 2013, and can be franchised if need be, but I'm sure we extend him after 2012.
I think Whitner could be a 3 or 4 yr deal, depended on how the brass feels about him. I also agree Akers and J.Smith should be easy, both love being here, and are vital members of this team.
It really feels good we are in good cap shape, and have a bright future ahead of us.
