The National Football Post ran an interesting article from Jason Cole the other day about why J.J. Watt and the other members of such a great draft class are going to get screwed when it comes to contract extensions. It's really worth a read.
A storm is brewing.
"In the case of Watt, who is due to make just over $1.9 million this season, if his fifth-year option is $6 million and the franchise tag is $12 million for him in 2016, the Texans essentially have him under contract for three more years at only $20 million. On the open market, Watt might be worth double that."
