    Go look at the option for Corey Davis was higher than Julio Jones salary, the go look at the 3 yr deal Julio has left with us, then go look at the Jets 3 yr deal for Davis. Julio is cheaper this year and the next 2 years! And Davis has been hurt more than Julio and is much younger!

    Thank you J-Rob! We are much better and if defense is just below average close to average we have a shot now!

    I would, but after two years of car wash rag duty, it's no longer an option.

    I'm not as hot for this deal as many of you. I'm not saying it is a bad deal just not a slam dunk.

    1. Julio's reign as an elite receiver may have ended. He had a 5 year run from 2014-2018 where he averaged almost 1600 yards a season. Now at age 32 he might be more of a 900 yard a season guy for the next 2-3 years.

    2. Expensive. They are talking about a 2nd and a 5th. His annual cap hit the 3 years left in his contract is $12.5M a year. If he averages 900 yards a season he will be well worth it but injuries could erode that. He only had 51 catches last year.

    Certainly Julio will be a nice guy to have if AJ goes down with an injury and Julio along with AJ and Josh Reynolds can be a dangerous trio.

    Take into account how expensive a good WR is these days.

    Kenny Galladay signed an $18M a year deal with the giants. Yikes. Good player but was coming off an injury year.

    Corey Davis was not nearly as expensive with the Jets. His deal was just $12.3M a year and the third year salary is not guaranteed with a small SB.

    Who would you rather have Corey Davis age 26-28 or Julio Jones age 32-34? Cap hit for both is about the same and Corey would have cost us no draft picks.

    huh?

    Corey is 6 years younger than Julio and would have cost us nothing in draft picks. Why did you not mention that?

    As for contract we could have still worked a 3-4 year deal with Davis.

    Brady is an outlier you never compare him to other players.

    Raiders were 26th in offense and Carr had his worst season since his rookie year.

    You're assuming Corey wanted to resign here. It appears perhaps he was eager for a chance to be top dog somewhere.
