Too Much Money Committed To Watt

Recommended Posts


Watt, 26, agreed to a four-year, $112 million extension, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The agreement includes $80 million in full guarantees, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler..

The average annual value of $28 million per season makes Watt the NFL's highest-paid defensive player. Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa's five-year, $135 million extension signed in 2020 has a $27 million average and $102 million guaranteed.

Watt's deal also outpaces Chicago Bears outside linebacker Khalil Mack, who was previously the highest-paid at the position with a six-year, $141 million contract signed in 2018. Mack's deal averages $23.5 million average annually and has $90 million guaranteed.

He's an outstanding player. No doubt about that. I think that is too much money for any team to commit to that position. It's a CAP killer.
