Here's problem, Chugger fans out in Encino.
Watson gets guaranteed money of $230 million.
Previously high was $150 million for Aaron Rodgers. Now, like Joe Burrows, Herbert is coming into year three of a five year rookie contract. But the new Watson
wave effect is this...the NFL requires owners to put the guaranteed future money into an escrow account. Thus, Browns have to put thr money of $184 million into an escrow.
Deano does not have that kinda money and Herbert would be stupid to sign 'an old fashion' type contract vs thenew guaranteed money. Every agent will want it. Probably it's what is holding up the Lamarr Jackson extension.
