DE Jerry Hughes: Signs two-year extension

Recommended Posts

Interesting it’s basically a full guaranteed deal.

Congrats 55!! McD likes to have a vet leader in each group and I think Hughes has curbed the penalties, performed well, and been a great teammate. I think McD actually liked that he challenged that ref last year too. He has a lot of “give a damn” in him.

That moolah is deserved. We are set on one side.  Price is reasonable and we will have continuity. Health permitting Hughes will deliver.

 

A little walk down memory lane:

Cue the “Hughes is done because he didn’t have a lot of sacks in 2018” crowd. 

 

An insightful, proactive move by Beane to take one worry off the table next offseason.

Hughes is also the longest-tenured player on the Bills

Yes he has spent a whale(y) of a time here.

Per Schefter

 

Bills’ DE Jerry Hughes is signing a two-year extension worth up to $23 million that includes $19.5 million guaranteed, per source.

 

Think I said 2 months ago that there was no way Hughes signed for less guaranteed than what the franchise tag would pay him next year (defensive end tag number this year was $17.1m)

 

EDIT: is it actually a 2 year extension? thereby tying him down through 2021? Or is it a 2 year deal for this year and next? If the former I don't love it, if it is the latter I do.

Hughes is a monster and underrated in my opinion. Good work Beane

Nice going.

 

This is a great contract IMO. Lock him up for the rest of his prime, and the high GTD builds goodwill so we can probably re-sign him again at the tail end of his career if we want at a little bit of an old age discount.

Doesn’t the word “extension” imply added years? Typically they use “restructure” if modifying an existing contract (even if adding additional years).

They can be a little loose with the wording though. I'll wait to see. If they are guaranteeing him $19m over the years when he will be 32 and 33 I think that is a really risky contract. When the cliff comes for pass rushers it tends to come quickly.
