Yes JJ is going to get a huge contract. But not $20 mil average. The franchise tag for DE's is $13.1 and that is $1.7 over the next highest defensive position.

$20 is too high.

Manning - $19.2
Brady - $14.12
Brees - $20
Flacco - $20.1

Something in the $16 ballpark* with tons of it guaranteed is a plausible forecast.

*Mario is at $16. Look for a "highest paid" that looks more like Flacco to Brees.
