    Yup, a supreme negotiating tool Henry just got. The argument JRob would have is that CMac has been very consistent in his play since day 1, as opposed to Henry blooming the past 2 seasons.

    McCaffrey averages 1,814 scrimmage yards per season.
    Henry averages 1,102 scrimmage yards per season.

    McCaffreys deal proves that Henry should be getting around $13.5 - $14 million a year. Henry's agents can't be happy about this McCaffrey deal.

    Wish we had gotten Henry's deal done before this. Probably just going to complicate the argument for both sides. While they play the same position, using CMC as a gauge of how to value Henry is a very flawed argument and not really relevant IMO.

    CMC is a RB/WR that plays nearly 100% of snaps and is used all over the field.

    Henry is likely the most effective true RB in the league, but only played around 63% of the offensive snaps in 2019 even though he was the full time starter. Meaning you have to have invest in another guy, not just to be his backup, but to actually play meaningful snaps in situations that Henry just doesn't fit.

    I agree with this stance

    CMC is basically a WR and RB, 2 players in one.

    I don’t at all deny that CMC is a Swiss Army knife and worth every penny, but it doesn’t change that style or not, Henry is our identity on offense...and we make no bones about it. Add in that the guy won RB of the year and ran for 180+ 3 games in a row into the playoffs makes a big case for him.

    CMC is undoubtedly the most valuable RB in the league, but this sure doesnt help our negotiations with Henry

    Henry should float in the 13-14 range now, very doable.

    well over half of McCaffrey deal is guaranteed also is the only player in history to have 2500 rushing and receiving In first three years. Def helps our case

    This does not help us with Henry. He is going to want 14-15 mill a year. I doubt we sign him to a long term deal.
