to justify franchising him for a third time at a rate of nearly $21 million in 2019. The former second-round pick will either hit free agency or sign an extension with the Steelers, which should easily top McCoy's $27.3 million figure. The interesting question is whether Bell will set a running back record. Seven of the eight largest running back deals are dead and buried, led by the three-year, $42 million deal Adrian Peterson negotiated as part of a restructure from the six-year, $86.3 million contract he agreed on with the Vikings before 2011. They remain the only two deals to top $31 million over three seasons and did so by a considerable margin, topping $40 million.
Nobody in the NFL has a larger contract relative to the other players at his position than Juszczyk. The Harvard product is in line to make $15.5 million in the first three years of his deal when no other active fullback deal calls for more than $6.6 million over the same time frame. Given that the fullback continues to be de-emphasized in offenses in favor of a third wideout or a second tight end, it's unlikely that we'll see many enormous contracts at the position anytime soon.
The two nine-figure contracts handed out to wide receivers under the current CBA are long gone, as Calvin Johnson has retired and Larry Fitzgerald is on a one-year, $11 million extension. Brown once had one of the biggest bargain veteran contracts in all of football, but after making $37.3 million over five years on his second deal, Brown got a huge raise to $17 million per year after the 2016 season.
Meanwhile, there are six active deals within $2 million of one another toward the top of the charts: DeAndre Hopkins ($49 million), Brown ($48.9 million), Sammy Watkins ($48 million), Demaryius Thomas ($47.5 million), A.J. Green ($47.3 million) and Julio Jones ($47 million). Those numbers were left in the dust by Evans, whose five-year, $82.5 million deal was only a modest increase on the five-year, $81 million deal signed by Hopkins before the 2017 season. The difference is that Evans reportedly will take home $55 million over the first three years, $6 million more than Houston's star wideout.
Beckham and his representation have made public proclamations about wanting to be the highest-paid player in the NFL. That's not going to happen, but it's likely that OBJ will end up with a huge deal courtesy of some inflated numbers at the end of the contract. In February, I suggested Beckham would sign a seven-year, $115 million deal with a $40 million signing bonus and $54 million due over the first three years. The recent video possibly depicting Beckham in a compromising situation in Europe could affect the negotiations, but the former LSU star remains the [url=http://www.redskinsfootballproshoponline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_SONNY_JURGENSEN_JERSEY.html]http://www.redskinsfootballproshoponline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_SONNY_JURGENSEN_JERSEY.html[/url] favorite to set financial records among wide receivers.
Graham set the bar in 2014 and then became the first tight end to match it in 2018. The then-New Orleans Saints star signed a four-year, $40 million extension with the team in 2014 after losing his grievance to be treated like a wide receiver for franchise tag purposes. That deal paid him $30 million through three years. Last week, Graham followed up that contract by signing a three-year, $30 million deal with the Green Bay Packers, matching his annual average and three-year value from the previous contract.
Gronk signed an extension two years into his pro career as a hedge against the back injury that cost him his final year at Arizona. The future Hall of Famer still might retire this offseason, but if he continues his career, it wouldn't be a [url=http://www.ravenshopfootballofficial.com/MATT-JUDON-JERSEY-CHEAP.html]Matt Judon Jersey[/url] surprise to see Gronkowski pick up a new deal next offseason handing him in excess of $10 million per year. If not Gronkowski, the next big deal is going to take a while, given that guys such as Zach Ertz and Travis Kelce are under contract through the 2021 [url=http://www.cowboysofficialauthentic.com/WOMENS-CHARLES-TAPPER-JERSEY.html]Womens Charles Tapper Jersey[/url] season. By then, someone like Evan Engram might be in the discussion.
To get Solder to leave the comfort of New England and head down I-95, the Giants had to reset the left tackle market. Trent Williams previously held both these marks at $13.6 million and $42.3 million, [url=http://www.authenticrangersstore.com/chris-kreider-jersey_c-427.html]http://www.authenticrangersstore.com/chris-kreider-jersey_c-427.html[/url] respectively. The leap from Williams' deal to Solder's would be like if Cousins picked up a three-year, $98.6 million deal from the Vikings. It's an enormous outlay from a team that desperately needed offensive line help for a tackle who has never been voted to a Pro Bowl during his seven years in the NFL.
This is a two-player market, with Johnson at $30.8 million over three years, Rick Wagner at $29.5 million and nobody else over $22 million. Johnson was presumably paid with the intention of eventually moving over the former fourth overall pick to left tackle, but with Halapoulivaati Vaitai holding his own in the absence of Jason Peters, the Eagles might not mess with what worked and just keep Johnson on the right side for the foreseeable future.
While players like Trent Brown are likely to sign extensions first, Lewan's teammate in Tennessee might be the right tackle with the best shot of topping Johnson's deal. The former eighth overall pick was named a first-team All-Pro during his rookie season, and [url=http://www.officialmapleleafsonline.com/Patrick_Marleau_Jersey]Patrick Marleau Jersey[/url] while Mike Mularkey made sure to give Conklin plenty of help, the Michigan State product has allowed just 2.5 sacks during his first two seasons in the league. The torn ACL that Conklin suffered against the Patriots might complicate things, but he's on pace to be one of the best right tackles in football.
Norwell's old center (Ryan Kalil) and new center (Brandon Linder) held these awards, only for free agency to wash the old marks away. Jensen has only one year as a center under his belt since high school, but the 26-year-old showed enough for the Ravens last year that Tampa Bay handed him an eight-figure annual salary. The 49ers clearly patterned Richburg's deal on former Kyle Shanahan-coached center Alex Mack, who got a five-year, $45 million deal with $28.5 million over the first three years. The Richburg contract added $500,000 per year for a five-year, $47.5 million mark with $30 million payable through 36 months.
