Yeah, I see a long term deal in the works now. He now knows he could play under the franchise next year as well. Expect something real soon.

He will probably appeal. No use and going through all that and not Persue all avenues. The Appeal should be quick though.

That's the outcome I expected. Can't blame Jimmy for trying tho. He'll get the contract that he deserves.

It probably is which is why they're still playing these stupid games. They would feel more pressure on their side if we just flat out said the contract is off the table and we're going to take it on a year to year basis. It'll clog up the franchise tag but from a business standpoint, makes a lot of sense on our end.

Do you have any link that a $10M deal was ever offered. I have searched far and wide and have found nothing beyond conjecture. I seriously doubt that an official offer has ever been made by either side.

I doubt Graham will allow the NFLPA to appeal. He most likely agreed to let them try this test case, but not to carry it any further. You can tell he simply wants to get a deal done.
