As we all know by now, Mahomes signed a 10 year deal. As with most things in the NFL, the deal looks much bigger than it really is and the guarantees are no where near the 503 million.
Nonetheless, it obviously has huge impact on the Ravens and Lamar. Lamar isn’t Mahomes and you likely wouldn’t bank on Lamar being elite in 10 years like you would Mahomes.
Lamar can sign his deal next year. That would still leave 2 more years on his rookie deal plus however many years he signs for.
I don’t see the Ravens going 10 years and no QB should get paid more than Mahomes. However, I could see Lamar getting a shorter deal but with more guaranteed money.
Other than the doing nothing vs. doing something aspect that CoC brings up, I think it’s important to frame this correctly. There’s a good chance that a lot of these guys weren’t in full lockdown prior to returning to facilities.
Most of the guys popping positive were walking around unaware of having it, showed up for testing then found out they had it. It’s not like there’s some unique baseball outbreak, which is how some in the sports media are positioning it.
