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.

Tag prices for DTs so far are lowballs compared to what AD is worth. So that raises the whole question---do you jerk around a player of that stature and caliber and if you do how does that look to the rest of the team.

And so (added via edit)...in another post here in today's subthread you pretty much say that and I agree:

One is b/c the tags are paying Donald so much less than his market value that he possibly would refuse to play under the tag.
Two, they recognize he is so underpaid and they just want to do right by the player.
Three, they want him on the team for more than the next 3 years and they know that if they play the tag game, it's all but guaranteed that he's gone after that.
