Giants place UFA tender on Markus Golden

Recommended Posts

That is some crazy tender.  How did the NFLPA let that one into the CBA?  :o

Hasn't it always been around?

I'd take Golden back on 5 million for the year.

Never know though some team could sign him for slightly more.

Get Golden back, with Fackrell, Carter, OX, Brown, Coughlin, and whoever else and they might make some noise.

The man showed up to play more than any other player in our front 7... I'm not sure why they're dicking around with paying him.

It could be that he wants more than what the Giants are willing to pay.

I mean people had a problem with Vernon making the money that he did and him and Golden have practically the same impact on the field.

Both of them are not really play makers they are serviceable.

Not to mention with this UFA tag he really gets to see his value on the market.

If he's truely a play making pass rusher some team will have no problem giving him 6 million a year.

LOL...who were the ones saying Golden was going to get $10mm per year?

 

He's going to end up with this one year prove it $5mm deal yet again.

I really thought he'd get close to the $10 million per.

10.5 sacks, that usually gets you paid.

I think that's normally the case for a guy getting 10 plus sacks, but I think people might be thinking his injury history prior to 2019 gives reason to be cautious. Plus other factors could be his age (29, not a baby anymore), scheme fit (maybe people only see him as a 3-4 OLB or situational pass rusher), etc.

Another factor is his side. We don't know what offers he got that he refused because he wanted more, offers that are now off the table once teams moved on. For all we know, he could have turned down close to 10 mil, like a 3 year $24mm contract.

12 to 15 gets you the 10+ million.

And those sacks usually come at times when the game is on the line or matters.

Not in blow out losses on bottom of the league defences.

If he honestly thought he would get as much he should fire his agent lol

Look, the man did very well given no one else on that DL did shit... remember having a good DL on the other side helps (the Strahan effect).   This organization spends a lot of money one mediocre players but then gets really cheap when it's one of our own.  I'm not saying the guy was a super star but his play stood out on the field.... he played really hard.

The market never materialized.  Top 4 Edge defenders at the start of FA:  Jadeveon Clowney, Markus Golden, Everson Griffen, and Clay Matthews.  None of them have been signed.  It has been argued that Clowney is the reason and I doubt it.

Yeah outside of Clowney all of these guys are on the other side of their careers in terms of age, no team wants to throw massive contracts at near or over 30 players who might take that sudden drop in play.

Clowneys biggest problem is he think his youth with earn him 20+ million when. He's failed to finish a season healthy more than once. Even in his best season in 2017 he has had a drop in play since then.

Reminds of of two year ago when the safety market was flooded with vet talent and no body was signing them until after the draft and even then it was mostly two year deals.

Clowney's biggest problem is he's overrated, injury prone and has never produced except for two seasons with 9 sacks. He's not a bust, but he's definitely not worthy of his #2 overall pick, and not worth over $10mm.

Golden is getting a bit fucked, but if we can get him for $5 million that's good business. We lose him we get a pick. Fine with this.

Clowney is much more (non-football) name than player. Look at his entire career and you'll see an injury prone player who's competent but nothing special. 

Also I have no idea why every time I reply to this thread it puts a Temp quote in there.
