60 million for 3 seems high, but seems to be the going rate for an okay player with a name.

Lamb and Diggs can get extensions after this season. That doesn't mean they will. Jerry had been known to wait. The good news is that Lamb has a 5th year option. This way at least their big cap hits will be staggered a year.

I'm not sure Lamb gets one next year. I think Diggs will.

Lamb is under contract through 2023 and then will be have his 5th year option renewed for 2024. That’s 3 more years. I suspect they’ll extend him sometime during the 2024 season and don’t think they are even thinking about his contract right now

Sign him now or later?

you mean 2023? Can’t sign him now. Extension in 2023 or 2024 or FA after 5. If he proves himself this year they should give thought to extending in 2023, but we’ve seen them wait until last minute a lot here lately. Some say draft a wr high next year to prep for letting lamb leave. Essentially treating wr like the rb position since it’s getting so expensive.

Is there a nfl rule that he can't be extended now?
Not saying they should btw.

Which is kind of dumb because the earlier you get it the cheaper it is even though the time when the money starts paying out does not change.

The two receivers that are making $60 million for three years are better than okay players. The going rate for real good WRs is skyrocketing and if you don’t want to pay the price you”ll be stuck with an okay player.

He’s had 2 good seasons sharing with cooper. If he balls out and has a season towards the top of the wr rankings then I’d look to extend (he would have proven it to me and I’d like to get him cheaper than what it would cost in 2024), but the offer has to be reasonable (not top wr money unless he just blows us all away). If he’s unreasonable or he has an average year I’d be drafting a wr high and have him try again in 2024.
