      We know that he has been tagged but they have until some time in july to still rework a longer term contract that could push his 2021 cap hit down into perhaps 5 million.

      With the cap going up next year, he wouldnt have much incentive, however, they could guarantee a great deal of money if he came off the tag and signed another contract.

      Anyone have an opinion on the likelihood of this?

      I hope it happens.

      You said little incentive?

      This is true like you said because cap going up.

      But still hes guaranteed 16 mil this year.

      A long term deal would guarantee him more then double that.

      So quite a bit incentive actually.

      Doubt it happens, but I hope it does.

      The incentive for Godwin to sign a long term contract is that the contract would have a large signing bonus. That bonus is paid upfront even though that bonus is spread out for the term of the contract for salary cap purposes. That provides insurance to a player in case he gets hurt or cut.

        But after this year they wont tag him again, everyone else will have boat loads of money and then its a bidding war. if he waits, unless he gets hurt, he could be in for even bigger guaranteed money.

        This is true.

        (God forbid) what if he has a career ender this year?

        Occasionally players wait too long. Freak injuries happen.

      if they plan to keep CG longer, then it should be done this summer and that has nothing to do with cap saving for 2021
