I don't see $2M being the difference between affording our young stars and not affording them. My suggestion is they make up that relatively small amount by letting an average vet - i.e. not a young star - walk in free agency.

It's not that simple usually.... there is 53 players to try to fit the puzzle.

What if on the other hand we get out bid on a player like Suh or Cooks by $2M?

The less money we can get away with paying all of our stars the better off the team will be.


You also have to remember, AD would be getting his contract a full year ahead of where Von Miller got his.... AD has to take that into account.

It would only be a full year ahead if they agree this year. That's not a certainty.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking regarding the Suh or Cooks bidding but my general philosophy is to pay the elite players and fill in the rest later. I'm wiling to lose players that are considered "good" but aren't far above average or elite.

In the past, we've overpaid mere average to slightly above average players. TA, Ogletree, Barron come to mind. I disagree with a philosophy that says overpay on those types but make certain you don't overpay on elites like AD, Suh, or Cooks.

The concept of getting away with paying great players less is not really a workable strategy. At best they get lucky with the rare player who is willing to leave some money on the table but they really shouldn't count on that. The usual result when you try to pay a great player less than they deserve like they tried to do with JJ is they will lose the player.

Keeping the average and letting the great walk is dumb IMO.
