    I'm more concerned with them putting a quality product on the field than I am with an egotistical Billionaire being limited on how many more jets, helicopters and yachts he can purchase.

    Understood. But it matters if we want to keep him for close to, or for the duration of the contract.

    This isn't the 90s, we have a salary cap.....(owners being cheap excuse doesn't work nowadays, you have to spend almost 90% of the cap in a multi year span or pay a penalty).

    Jerry isn't buying more jets by not paying Tank, the issue is future cap space for a player that is about to have off-season surgery for the 3rd straight year.

    Jerry’s money and the cap are two separate things
    85 million is a huge amount to guarantee a player who needs surgery now, has had a suspension and is not the top player on the edge
    I want the player but not at the cost of one of the LB’s in a few years

    Very few guys play out
    And tank you don’t want for 6 yrs anyway
    You want an out in 3-4 years
    I want an out in 3-4 years on every second contract

    Even with him our pass rush is mediocre especially in second half season. Our D May very well take a hit then again they may do enough to keep it average with other additions

    I consider Dak , Zeke and Coop more important as well I think smith and Jones are pretty key as well. I’d like to keep tank but not at the risk of losing the some of the others

    Ooooh. Well, in that case, they need to be careful about calling him a whiny ******** P.O.S., too. Not that they have, but, you know... They better be careful not to.

    It's really the Agent and the NFLPA that are most greedy. The Player a lot of the time gets dragged into fray without advocating for every last dollar.

    That's true too, in most cases. But how do we get him to accept much less in guaranteed money? He's asking 85, right? What are we realistically expecting him to accept? 50-60M? Since the contract is so big, there really isn't a good way to structure that without either a high dead cap at the end, or a high cap hit up front. But I'll concede your point when we're talking a few mil here and there. The guaranteed money has a much bigger impact.

    jones' can say whatever he or they want. THEY RUN AND OWN THE TEAM. They are the employer.Why is that notion so hard to understand? ITS NOT UNLIKE ANY BUSINESS MODEL. You have THE BOSS, OWNERSHIP, AND YES, THE PLAYERS ARE EMPLOYEE'S. Tank either works and gets paid, or he can be gone. Get the shoulder fixed, sign the tag so we can work out something...and go to work on the field.
