I'm not surprised that Loomis is being coy. Are you?

Wow, came down to $22mil per annum?!? That's not going to be a team-friendly contract at all...

It's his only chance to get paid for sure. I wouldn't imagine it would be too "team-friendly". But, it isn't the annual salary that counts. It is the guaranteed amount.

In all fairness, Michael Thomas responded to this with a laughing emoji.

key points-
>After MT, Cooper, Jones, and Green are next. He's not going to take 18 when he knows those 3 could get more

>He make 1.1 this year unless he gets this deal. I don't think anyone can leave 17+ million on the table and go into a season in which he has very little chance of improving (since he is already #1), but with a significant chance of dropping, or watching Cooper and Green gets spurned also

As good as Thomas is if he is demanding 22 mil a year I’d trade him. Get as much as you can and ship him off. Let another team go into cap hell. Pretty sure they could get a bunch of early picks for him

You have to win while you have your star players on rookie contracts. Pay MT top dollar now while we still have Kamara, Lattimore, Ramczyk, Rankins, etc on rookie deals. We won’t be able to keep them all.
