Carolina Panthers. Zach Wilson.
Who knows, perhaps the final year or two have some performance clauses or triggers that might affect the total amount of the contract that year.
The salary cap gets renegotiated next year, by that time I think the amount we are paying him will look far better... If you're going to lock anyone into a 7 year deal, just before a cap increase would be the time to do it.

Nek minnit, Covid strikes again and the salary cap is halved and we have to trade Rivers, Kozzie and Jackson. We then redraft Terlich, Magner and bring Watts out of retirement to fill our list.

Wait yeah, if this is under 1mil a season we just committed highway robbery like wtf. Nobody would bat an eyelid if Tracc was the highest paid player in the game at 1.3-1.5 mil a year. I think we might have cash left over to chase Josh Kelly now. I'm getting excited again. I can see it now.

Gawn down to Oliver, hands to Jordon, hands it to Petracca, Petracca runs 10m, hits the short kick to Kelly at the edge of the 50, 45 degree angle. Kelly picks out Jackson who takes a soaring mark over the pack 20m out directly in front and kicks truly after the siren to win the 2022 flag over the Gold Coast Suns. Back to Back for the Demons!

Thing with Trac is that if he loses his pace or explosiveness in tight, he would make a mighty fine lead up forward. Great shout for mine. Love it.

Both signed for unders aswell. Carrying Harmes for 2 years on 300k is no where near as dangerous as carrying anyone for 1 million a season.
Harmes isn't on 300k. Would be at least 400k.
