I like the fact they used part of the TMLE to lock up Joe.
That being said, that contract is not a
Hinkie Special. Joe shouldn't have been able to demand anything. If as part of his delegation, Morey left the contract negotiation to Brand... he needs to take that responsibility back
Seriously though, it's a smart signing and a good way to try and create an asset.
I'm sure the parameters for the salary were pre-arranged. It's probably what was promised to him if he refused to work out for, or provide medicals to other teams. Refusing to work out for teams is how everyone figures out guys have promises.
The dollar amount isn't bad. It's less than the slot for the 30th pick, but more than the rookie minimum.
I agree w/this. The only reason it's not a 4 Year Hinkie Special (like Shake got) is because there was a predetermined deal for this particular contract, in exchange for Joe and his agent steering him towards us.
Yeah, Isaiah Joe's agent did a great job for him. He was in a similar situation as Shake Milton, when he declared for the draft. They were boarder line 1st round picks, that were injured during the year. Shake worked out for teams coming off the injury and his stock fell. Joe's agent didn't let his client go through that and he got 2.6 million guaranteed, without having to do anything.
Shake got put on a 2-way and made less than 300k his rookie year. Shake's made less than 2 million total, going into his 3rd year, and he had to prove himself just to get that.
