It is entirely possible that they showed him respect by not tagging him multiple times, instead letting him make the decision to stay in Tampa or test the waters.
I wouldn’t mind paying him an average of $16 -$18 million per year as long as he would accept a lower base salary in 2021. But like someone else said, signing him to anything bigger than four years is a huge mistake considering he is in his late 20s.
Also, signing him doesn’t negate the fact that we need to draft an edge rusher early. JPP is 32 years old and who knows how long he will be able to go. Time to start grooming his replacement.
