I think Godwin would take 4 years. He becomes a free agent again at 29. Spotrac has his market value at $17.1M

Give him a $30M signing bonus and guarantee 2021 and 2022 base salaries for a total of $43M guaranteed.

2021- 2M + 7.5M = 9.5M
2022- 11M + 7.5M = 18.5M
2023- 12M + 7.5M = 19.5M
2024- 13M + 7.5M = 20.5M

If Godwin’s franchise number was $9.5M would anyone think of not tagging him? Of course not, so what’s the problem with this?

David’s market value is 3 for $38M. Easy. $21M signing bonus with guaranteed 2021 and 2022 base salaries for a total of $30M guaranteed. If he doesn’t take it then you have to let him walk.

2021- 2M + 7M = 9M
2022- 7M + 7M = 14M
2023- 8M + 7M = 15M You’re looking at potentially $7M of dead money here but it’s price of win now mode.

So you just got Godwin and David back for a total of $18.5M in 2021. Got to do some house keeping to be able to tag Barrett (cut Brate, extend Smith, restructures).
