Giving this pervert a guaranteed huge contract was moronic!! I don't blame Lamar at all. A healthy Lamar is worth more than Watson, but he made a big mistake stepping on the field last year without a new contract in place. Now this makes two years in a row he got hurt and couldn't finish the season. The ravens have just two decisions: Pay him a fully guaranteed contract or trade him for as much as you can get. I doubt he plays under a franchise tag. So how would that work under salary cap? The team would be committing $xx mil towards the 2023 cap. But if he didn't play at all, he wouldn't get paid. Would the Ravens then get that money credited back towards the 2024 cap? Would make it easy to tag him again as wouldn't cost that much more for 2nd year tag. Would it even be considered a 2nd year cap, could be a bog league NFLPA argument over that one. Believe too the rules changed in last CBA that he needs to report by week one to have the year count as accrued, used to be around week 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
