CB Jimmy Smith of Balty just got a 4/$41M extension FFS. I know I know I know, The Steelers WAY. Well, you know, fuck that, we have three, three, exactly THREE guys who determine our future over the coming 4 year window. Yeah, lots of other guys figure too, but Ben, AB, and Bell. Ben been taken care of. AB has outplayed his contract. Bell, despite the fungibility of RBs, figures to be young and productive enough to require a solid C$2. But for now, AB needs to be at least commensurate with some top-10 WR salaried bobos who are not fit to eat the corn out of his shit.
AB has, IIRC, 3/$32, of which some $9M has already been delivered via signing and restructuring bonii. Take the remaining salary, slather out a new guaranteed sum like a schmear of schmaltz on a nice slice of rye, I don't care how much that is either unless o'course dude gets hurt, but... sumpin' like we tear up your deal and deliver 5/$55. Which hits the magical $11M/year that eejits like Wallace and Vince Jackson pull, but also gives AB that $9M from previous deals or closer to 5/$64.
He's happy, we rent his prime years, and believe me he's worth it, and we can carve cap savings into 2016-17 when we need it more than 2015.
