Re: Art Jones
LukeDaniel, you make some great points, really appreciate discussing with you.
In your scenario Suggs receives $15.8m over the course of the first two years. If someone else offers him a 3-year $27m deal which is so frontloaded that it's feasible to cut him after just one year, then that means they have paid A LOT in year 1, and when i say a lot, i mean in the neighbourhood of the $15.8m you have him slotted to make over the course of two years with us. Also if he signs an extension with us, don't you think that would serve as an insurance that he retires a Raven? Suggs will probably be in the league beyond 2015, so I think that if he were to give us a "hometown-discount" (hate that term) then it would require a bit more contractual insurance than you're willing to give him.[/quote]
I apologize if I come off as being dismissive of your suggestions. I just think it's a fun discussion to have.

Trading Jones is an interesting option. I know trading is rare, but can anyone speculate what his return value would be in terms of picks?
