Default Re: If you were JJ Watt, would you stay?

How else did the franchise-tag rules change?

Teams can continuously franchise players, but it'll cost them to do that. As had been the case previously, a player tagged a second straight year would have his number set at 120 percent of the previous figure. A third straight year? That's where things change, and the percentage goes up to 144.

Here's an example: Drew Brees' franchise tag number is estimated to be a relatively affordable $14.4 million this year. If he's tagged a second straight time, it'd cost the Saints, based on the estimates, $17.28 million. In Year 3, because of the change, the number goes all the way to $24.88 million. That means Brees gains some leverage in negotiating a long-term deal, in that the tag numbers add up to about $56.6 million over three years, or nearly $19 million per.

This ain't the NBA.

JJ Watt is not bolting to play in a bigger market or to play with Von Miller and Patrick Willis as they go to South Beach.

When is the last time a young franchise type player left a team? Only because his old team did not want to pay him. That is usually the only reason.

Um, he's going to get paid regardless of where he goes.

I think this is all a little premature. Has he ever given an indication that he's looking to leave as soon as he can? I could see it in 2 more years if we continue like we are, but he's experienced more winning than losing in his career.

I don't think it will ever come down to a Kubiak goes or I go situation. There is no way he keeps his job after this season.

No crap..

The only difference is Houston is the only team that can offer him that contract before he reaches FA.. and since this isn't the NBA and is the NFL where careers and lives can change on any given snap.. he isn't going to turn it down.

He can get paid anywhere, but players (especially players along the trenches) in the NFL don't want to leave it up to chance.

J.J. Watt isn't going anywhere.. I just hope he enjoys playing for his next coach.

There is no way Watt is going anywhere for at least three years unless Texans allow it. He is under contract for 2014 & we can tag him for two. Let's meet then, same bat time, same bat station.

Even if we stay in the 3-4 we'll make him the highest paid player, because he isn't your run of the mill 3-4 end. When you record the most defeats in a season then you get paid.. regardless of your position. Who gives a crap if he's a OLBer or not. He's already putting up those type of numbers from his position and as long as he keeps putting up those numbers he'll get paid.

So I guess you'd have to say JJ endorses the recent changes around the Texans, since he re-upped.
