    As you are aware, the Colts are in contract extension negotiations with Andrew Luck. It will probably exceed $100 million. When the deal gets done, he will likely be the highest paid player in the NFL.In a few years, the Bucs will be in a similar situation with Jameis. If he is all the player we think he is, he will likely also get a mega deal. I am sure the Glazer and Jason Licht are observing with much interest. It's one of those situations where you deal with it when you get there. But, there are a few things the Bucs can do now where that contract won't handicap the franchise: 1 Draft well and develop well young talent2 Be mindful of the salary cap3 Don't go crazy in free agencyI was curious if anyone else, especially Scott or Mark, has any thoughts on this? Especially now since we are in the quiet time of the NFL schedule before training camp. Thanks and go Bucs!!!!

    Well after the 2017 season the team can try and lock him up two years ahead of his 5th year option expiring to see if they can get him for a few million cheaper over the long run. Of course that is if he can establish himself as a top tier QB

    You know, I’m as excited about Jameis as anyone, but let’s see him string together a few years before we even start thinking about making him the highest paid player in a few years.

    Yes, once you find your franchise QB, you are on the clock to surround him w talent and win before you are handicapped w the massive contract. Time for some good drafts and development. And soon.

    He will establish himself as a superstar in the next couple of seasons.  Then turn down all offers from the Bucs.  And bolt for the Eagles first chance he gets. Its a Bucs life.

    I’ve noted this before, but while McCoy’s contract runs through 2021, the dead cap drops to zero in 2019.  Jameis will be due for a new contract or fifth year extension in 2019.  It's funny how that works, isn't it?

    You know there is a thing called the Franchise Tag. If Winston refused to resign with the Bucs he is still stuck here for the next 6 years as long as he performs sice the Bucs could franchise him twice after exercising the 5th year option.

    Good Sir!  I do hope you are talking 'per season' and not contract total.  It would be grand larceny not to pay the man his full value.

    Andrew Luck will earn $140 million over six years in his newly signed extension, Colts owner Jim Irsay said. The star QB also will take home an NFL-high $87 million in guarantees.Wow, that's a lot of money. I wonder how much cap room this will take up.
