      Um what? Why?

      Just in case he somehow finds a way to be useful this year? Jesus that is fully guaranteed too.

        So we're telling him that he doesn't have to prove anything. Swell.

            Why would he have to prove himself? He was a 1st round pick and had a high SPARQ score and stuff.
            No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

              Yeah I just don't get it. We are moving him to corner not even knowing if he can be a NFL starting corner and we want to pay him like one anyway? It's madness.

                His main skill is locking up elite tight ends man to man. He's actually hella-good at it. There's a place for a guy like that on a team but $6 million seems like a king's ransom for that. I guess they are projecting that he can be a pretty good corner but he's never really shown that. However, I suspect if he hits free agency next year someone will throw a Brinks Truck at him so there's that...
                I was on the draft LVE train. I was for trading for Amari before it happened.
                'nuff said

                  Kris Richard will turn him into a stud.

                    He runs fast and jumps height!

                    SPARQ score, Baby.

                      I thought the 5th year option for him would be around 9-10 million, for just a little over 6 I don't mind, and it's only guaranteed for injury.

                      Given how inflated salaries are nowadays 6 million is the going rate for an average starter/top-level 5th or 6th DB. For reference you got Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr out here making about 7 a year. A guy like Nevin Lawson, who is a borderline starter type at CB, got 2 years/9.2 million from Detroit even after playing worse in 2017 than 2016.

                      A 1 year, 6 million deal that is only guaranteed for injury is very low-risk for a player like Jones.

                        Agreed, this is no big deal. It's not long term.

                          Yep. And we have massive cap space.

                            So if we cut him after this season we owe him nothing? For some reason I thought it was fully guaranteed but sounds like I was wrong.

                              That’s what I thought as well.
