  • Beatty Deal is done!

    Let's play and try to figure out how much Reese is willing to spend on a contract for Will Beatty. The reason ? Calculating future handicaps and salary cap situation in the near future.
    Let the brain picking begin !
    He is about to turn 28 years old . So my best guess is a 5 year 37.5 mill contract . I should say that would be more or less a very " friendly team " contract in my estimation.

    Quality starter LT's don't come cheap. Im thinking Beatty is looking for $8-10 M a year and will get it even with his back problem history.

      The back could be a sticking point. He may want to get as much money as he can as soon as he can in case he gets injured again. We may not want to risk bigger money, due to our cap troubles. We could lose him to a team with enough cap room to take a chance on his back holding up.

        If he wants more than 8m APY then tag him and move on.

          There are certain positions where you have to pay, no problem with that but in my mind Beatty is not a top tier LT. Don't get me wrong he is very good and should be paid as a very good LT. I'm thinking in the 7-8 Mil a year range for 4 years...

            I agree, you can't franchise tag him, because he is not a top 5 LT. He's more like 6-10.
            Do not feed the trolls.

              The question is would we have the cap space to afford even the 5 year 37.5M contract? We need to draft a tackle round1...

                  The giants only have 11 players under contract for more two seasons. Of course they will add salary to the cap when they resign guys like Nicks and JPP, but they don't have much in cap commitments going forward.

                  They should be able to afford Beatty if they want

                    If Beatty thinks that he warrants top 5 LT money, then* he's an idiot.

                      It's not Beatty. It's what the market is for LT's and what his agent feels he can get him.

                        The franchise tag is 9.5 million, so that's the market for top 5 LTs. Beatty is not that. Guys like Jake Long (when healthy), Joe Thomas, and Ryan Clady command that type of money.

                        Beatty won't get more than 6 million a year, on average.

                          I agree. I'm saying Beatty is not the one being an idiot and commanding money. His agent will look to get him the most money possible.

                            Oh certainly, and the Giants will be sure to remind the agent that his client isn't in that tier.

                              Problem with that is he will be fighting a very strong FA and Draft class of Tackles. I don't see a team overpaying him, and I'm pretty confident that we'll retain him if we don't pursue someone better.
