Were they already negotiating??

Apparently, yes they have been.

Well I suppose it could be worse and we could just front load his contract and have to re-neg after a few years.

I mean...I'm still confident a deal will get done, but...this doesn't ease the mind exactly.

I don't think there is a real story here. It's like when we started the Dez watch thread. It's pointless. The team isn't dumb enough to let Martin walk just like they wouldn't be dumb enough to let Dez go before offering a pay cut.

This. Hunter Henry already tore his ACL in OTAs. Why risk injury before locking in a big pay day?

I mean yeah, it probably isn't much of a story...but it's still news worthy. I mean, it's not as though we have much else to talk about right now.

Any guess as to his potential contract??? 

how much does the top OG get paid? will it be at the top OT level? more?

I would guess $14-15m/yr. $35-38m guaranteed.

Right now Andrew Norwell is the highest paid guard in the league after signing a 5-yr $66.5MM contract with $30MM in guarantees and a $15MM signing bonus. I'd imagine Martin to get probably a good bit more than that.

I was being a bit sarcastic. Overall I think Martin signs because I don't feel the team is dumb enough to let him walk, BUT I've said that before. Just recently with Dez, and was absolutely positively shocked in every sense of the word with Dez being cut.

So nothing surprises me anymore with this team/staff. So this IS news. Even though it shouldn't be.

Would you pay Martin, an offensive guard, $70 or 80 Mil?
