That leaves the average annual cap hit of the 2022 - 2026 portion of the contract at $16.5M. Unclear how much of that is front loaded or backloaded. I don't see it as out of touch with market value - remember the cap is going to go up next season by a lot.

This has a lot to do with reinforcing the culture. If you want to talk culture you can't let a guy like Jon Allen get to the franchise tag phase. Because he's a guy that does absolutely everything right. The culture talk is empty if you don't extend Allen.

Scherff does everything right too but he flat out doesn't want to be here. We offered top of the market guard money and he said no, not much more you can do.
I get that. I just don't view Allen as a 16 million dollar player. Not even close if you ask me. When Matt I is healthy I feel he is better and he makes like 7 million. Was it important to re-sign him? I'd say yes and sometimes you have to overpay and I think we did in this instance.

I wish the NFL would put a rule in where you can go over the cap to re-sign your drafted players.

Re: Jonathan Allen Signs - Training Camp begins Tomorrow

JA tweeted: Washington for life!

He has officially replaced Kerrigan as the undercover leader of the defense (not just because of that tweet). We absolutely had to re-sign him. He is foundational as a player and leader. He will set the standard for his fellow defensive players (at minimum). So glad we got this one right.

In general, he's also showing people, that Rivera and Co. are legit. No longer the same ole Skins/WFT.

We have at minimum, JA, Chase, Sweat, W. Jackson, St. Juste (for whatever reason, this is my dude, he's gonna be a baller), and Davis for the next 3 seasons. At minimum!! Doesn't include other guys we can re-sign or future draft picks. This defense is going to real sexy for the near future.

Side note - I loved it at the time and I love it even more now, and this pre-dates Rivera, trading back into the 1st to get Sweat was HUGE!! That extra year is big time.

Re: Jonathan Allen Signs - Training Camp begins Tomorrow

This time last year we were all bitching about TE..lol. Thomas quietly put up a real good year w/ Haskins and Smith for the most part.

3rd in the NFL in receptions and 7th in yards, with 6 TDs! (team only had 16 TD receptions total)


He'll be a beast with Fitz!

This is great. Not only football guys making football decisions, but players actually wanting to be a part of what's going on here.

Exciting times...

This deal is for $24 million over three years with $10.3 million in guarantees. Thomas is now the seventh-highest paid TE in the NFL.

I guess the context I'm missing from you is an understanding of which contracts around the NFL do you think are not overpays? Especially for 1st round picks getting to their first contract.

This is fantastic news! I absolutely love what Rivera and FO have been doing since last year.
