That’s a prove it deal for Jackson. If he can stay healthy all season and get his play back to previous levels, he can then come back in 2025 and have a chance to get the deal he was expected to get this offseason.
I would be ok a little more or add some bonus possible money.
I think its low but looking at that type offer how about same offer that GG took last season.
Graham Glasgow signed a one year, $2.75 million contract with the Lions of which $2.5 million is guaranteed. So bump to 3.75 with 3 guaranteed. Last season Jackson cap hit was *$3,255,141.
So he gets small raise with a lot more guaranteed.
Yeah, and that’s about where he’s valued right now. I just think he’s become a JAG, and if we can have this good of a season with a JAG at LG, imagine what we could do with an upgrade. And at iOL, upgrading can come cheap.
If we can lock up both GG and Jonah for one year for 13-14m combined I’d like us to do that. Then pepper the mid rounds for developmental OL. Honestly I was thinking 2/12m for GG and 1/8m for JJ.
I get that we need to work towards lowering our cap expenditures on the OL without lowering the quality of our OL play. I also realize the potential perilousness in attempting to do that. So let’s spread out the timeline of that objective to increase our margin of error.
Yeah, you’re right. Even at his best I thought he was an average starter. Maybe slightly above average. And that’s great on an OL, you always hear the key to a good line is to not have any holes. It’s better to have 5 average players than 3 stars and 2 holes. I guess I just think Jonah should be pretty easy, and cheap, to upgrade.
