Am I pulling this out of my arse or was there another case very similar to this with Terrell Suggs?


NFL said Suggs was an OLB. Suggs said he was a DE. They agreed to some kind of Hybrid OLB/DE tag and worked out a new contract.

I think that's what happens to JG.

at some point in this there will be very few "positions"

Will be:
ball catchers/runners
ball throwers/runners
kickers
tacklers

That would be bad for TEs and therefore bad for the player union.

Jimmy getting an extra million or so isn't as good for the players as Jimmy signing a long term deal that sets a new mark for TEs.
