That’s too much. I’m on board with $3 years at about 40 mil with mostly guaranteed, but a way to get out of it in the 3rd year if things go South. Is that wishful thinking? I don’t know, but I don’t want to be on the hook too much for guys when they can’t perform anymore.
Paying him 16 per year is crazy when so many guys need huge contracts now and in the next couple seasons. 13 mil is almost too much IMO (still a 3m pay raise). I think Lavonte is still a stud, but I def think he lost a step from his former self. Less splash plays and when trying to chase down guys after they get the sideline and turn up field he does look a little old. His football IQ and instincts make up for a lot tho.
