it could be a potential franchise crippling move. say he commands 3 firsts plus that salary. you’re going to be lean as hell on draft capital for years. id possibly consider it if we had multiple first rounder this season so you’d essentially only be missing a number 1 pick for this year and next
but then you get to the major crippling part and thats the contract. the cap is likely not going up for a couple years and we’ve got a bunch of guys who are gonna need extensions in the near future. you somehow get Watson and you kiss Godwin goodbye, probably LVD, maybe Vea in years plus Davis will be coming due.
so now say he regresses or tears up a knee for a third time and now you dont have the cap space or picks to replace him. welcome to complete irrelevance and praying that you hit on a bunch of late round gems
