Paying Brock Osweiler in 2016

Houston is another team that probably regrets not giving Wilson Alex Lewis Jersey a shot in the third round of the 2012 draft. The Texans still had Matt Schaub at the time, so you can understand why they wouldn’t have spent an early pick on a quarterback. Still, in Round 3 that year they selected wide receiver DeVier Posey seven spots before Seattle took Wilson.

Had former GM Rick Smith taken Wilson there, he probably wouldn’t have made the even bigger mistake of giving Osweiler a four-year, $72 million with $37 million guaranteed in the 2016 offseason.

At that point, the Texans had become desperate for a franchise quarterback, and Osweiler was the hottest thing on the market. But the 2012 second-round pick lasted just one abysmal season in Houston, completing 59 percent of his passes and throwing more interceptions (16) than touchdown passes (15).

It’s small margins to start with, said Henrik Stenson, another victim of the late-day conditions. I mean, the greens aren’t running perfectly smooth in the first place. But then in the afternoon, when they get crusty and baked, it’s like glass around the hole.

Jones still has three years left on his contract, so it may be difficult for him to keep up his play long enough to cash in big again. His deal isn’t set to expire until 2021 — just after his 32nd birthday.

What he’s looking for: The list of players who make more than Jones now includes Jarvis Landry, Davante Adams, and Sammy Watkins. None of those players have topped 1,400 receiving yards in a season — something Jones has now done four years in a row. Adams hasn’t even cracked 1,000 yards in a season yet.

Jones isn’t asking for a record-breaking amount, just a little bit more to put Authentic Clayton Keller Jersey him in Brown’s stratosphere instead of Adams’.

The Falcons also have freedom to move on from Jones after getting through the first couple years of a front-loaded contract. It would cost the team just $2.4 million in dead money if he was released after the 2018 season, and he could be cleared from the books entirely after 2019.
