Just three years after signing a contract worth $14.25 million per season that runs through 2020, Julio Jones is looking for a new deal. The wide receiver decided not to attend Falcons offseason workouts without an updated contract.
When players are unhappy with their contracts, it usually is easy http://www.nflfalconslockerroom.com/elite-isaiah-oliver-jersey to pinpoint why. Either the player has outperformed his contract or the NFL market has changed. A player also could be in the final year of his contract and is worried http://www.officialauthentic49er.com/authentic-george-kittle-jersey.html something could derail his free agency the following season.
But for Jones, the Bryant saga should not be anything more than a minor consideration. Jones obviously will be on the team this year, so he may as well consider his $10.5 million salary guaranteed. There is virtually no chance Atlanta would release him from his $12.5 million salary next year, either, barring a catastrophic injury. Bryant was ineffective (at least to the George Kittle Youth Jersey level of his salary) for nearly three years before he was cut. Jones could survive one bad season.
That’s a lot of change for a talented, young team still trying to find its championship groove. When examining key parts of the Rams’ depth chart going into training camp and cutting through the hype, some new questions come with those new solutions.
Cooks, still only 24, was traded for the Isaiah Oliver Jersey second time in many offseasons ahead of the final year of his rookie deal. After going through a roller coaster in New Orleans and New England with Drew Brees and Tom Brady, respectively, Cooks hopes to last in LA as Jared Goff’s go-to guy.
The Rams had Cooks on their radar in 2017, and he gives them both a big-play and a little-play upgrade over Sammy Watkins, who signed with the Chiefs. Cooks got a head start working with Goff before they officially became teammates. There’s a good Pac-12 vibe going with Goff, Cooks and last year’s surprise top wideout, Robert Woods.
