    We need to know if he can the guy.........which is why Coop had to go. No way you can get a true answer trying to satisfy TWO No. 1 WRs.

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

    They will drag their feet, wait two more years and watch his price go up even more.

    We have seen this show before

    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

    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.

    yes. That’s why the tweet says he’s ELIGIBLE for an extension in 2023. Remember zeke holding out after 3 seasons? Because that was the soonest he was eligible for an extension.

    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.

    Lamb has not proven to be a true number 1 yet in my opinion.

    He'll have the opportunity to do that this year.

    You have to play at least 3 seasons to get an extension. And no matter when he gets an extension, it doesn't start until 2025.

    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.

    Trade him in 2024 and go with Gallup and Tolbert as the starters.
