Lamar Jackson QB1

Recommended Posts

Looking at the current breakdown of the pro bowl, seems very probably that Lamar won’t make the PB this season. Perhaps his popularity takes hold, but there’s a good chance that he won’t make it. Which means Lamar will have one more season needed to make the pro bowl in order to make franchise tag money vs transition tag money on his 5th year option.

Quote

 

First-round picks will receive a base salary equal to the cap percentage average of the transition tag for the player’s position in his fourth season but using the appropriate third- through 20th-highest PYS at the player’s position if they have not been selected to the Pro Bowl on the original ballot but did (a) partake in at least 75 percent of his team’s offensive or defensive plays in two of his first three regular seasons or (b) play a cumulative average of 75 percent of his team’s offensive or defensive plays over the course of his first three regular seasons or (c) log at least 50 percent of his team’s offensive or defensive snaps in each of his first three regular seasons.

A first-round pick named to the Pro Bowl on the original ballot in one of his first three regular seasons will receive a fifth-year option equal to the transition tag at his position for the league year of the player’s fourth year of his rookie deal. Those selected to two or more Pro Bowls in their first three seasons will receive a fifth-year option equal to the franchise tag applicable to his position in the player’s fourth season.

It’ll probably only be the difference of about $2-3m but you never know how those funds could come in handy. Could find ourselves singing the next LJ Fort type of player to positively impact our defense.

2019 Lamar makes this throw. Don't know what to pin the regression on for Lamar, but let's hope he can return to form in 2021.
