right now....i would agree to a 3 year and opt out and make the contract smaller.. just want him signed...

A 3 year with an opt out gains the Rams nothing. Absolutely nothing.

In fact, it hurts their cap situation in the process.

It’s not gonna happen.

The way the CBA is written, teams have 3 franchise tags available whenever the contract ends. The CBA also expressly provides that teams and players cannot contract away the tags. Thus, I'm pretty sure that even if there was an opt out, the Rams would have franchise tags to use after the contract ends which presumably would be when he exercises the opt out option.

So the Rams would gain potentially having him for 6 years instead of 3 years.

Very interesting take, dz.

If true, though, wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume that AD’s agent would also be aware of it?

And how would such a scenario affect the agreed upon amount in AD’s first 3 years? Maybe inflate it even further, I’m afraid.

And, if so, why not just do the triple tag starting in ‘19 while maintaining maximum leverage and be done with haggling while the chips fall where they may?
