I like your creativity.

I'll say $18M guaranteed, 6 years $36M total. Signed today but not in time for the first practice.

Re: Predict Landry's contract details

I just realized that the Skins have to be mindful of the rookie pool. I think they have $2.1 million in space in 2007 remaining on their rookie pool, so Landry's cap figure in year 1 will have to be $2.1 million or less.

That means that the predictions Matty and I gave are impossible. With a bonus of $17.5 million or $18 million over 6 years, that would allocate $3.0 million to each season in bonus alone. That would put him over the rookie pool.

The contract will have to have a lower bonus. In exchange, the Skins will give him a voidable 6th year, and more base salary in the later years. I'll say in the neighborhood of:

- 6 Years (6th year voidable)
- $12 million bonus
- Total value of $45 million

How about something closer to $15M guaranteed then? Would that work?

$15 million divided by 6 years comes to $2.5 million per year. So that would mean his cap figure in year one will be $2.5 million plus whatever the base salary is for a rookie. So no, that wouldn't work for us, because it would put him over the $2.1 rookie pool in year one.

This is probably the exact reason why the Skins don't have a deal with him yet. Landry probably wants $15-$18 million in guarantees (that's market rate for the 6th pick these days) but the Skins have to explain that if we give you that much in guarantees, we have to make the deal a 10 year deal in order to fit under the rookie pool. Then Landry says hell no, I'm not signing a 10 year deal, I want to hit free agency at some point in my career. Then the Skins say OK, then if you want a 6 year deal, the guaranteed money can't be higher than $12 million.

So ultimately they have a stalemate, and they'll have to get creative with voidable years to satisfy both Landry and the rookie pool cap.

Re: Predict Landry's contract details

Does anyone think that we'll look back a few years from now and say "Damn, we sure were smart to lock up 30% of our salary cap in two safeties?" "That is surely what got us to the superbowl!"
