Re: Jason Worilds Signs Transition Contract For 2014
I've actually got Cliff down with 9.5 sacks the year before he signed, not 7. However I'd still argue JW has had a more successful contract year (I never said career stats, just 'year'), and thus interest in his services.
Also Cliff and his agent turned down a 3/40mil deal, with DET prior to signing with SEA. So his signing of 2/15mil shows the dis-interest and/or market value for him at the time.
Not sure you can really suggest 6-7mil as a realistic value for JW this year in an open market. Even if you placed Cliff as the going rate at that time, time's moved on, the salary cap has risen, there's few proven rushers on the open market currently, and even fewer 26 year old proven rushers.
