Player in league history... Where will Lamar fall?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- From the moment the Denver Broncos landed Russell Wilson in a franchise-altering trade this past March, general manager George Paton insisted that the team's goal was to sign the star quarterback to a long-term extension.

Paton and the Broncos achieved that goal Thursday, agreeing with Wilson on a five-year, $245 million extension that includes $165 million in guaranteed money, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Wow, how the tables have been turned over. Broncos bench him for the last 2 games to "get a spark" for their offense and for "financial reasons". What would those reasons be?

For starters, he us fully owed $39 million for next year, BUT, and it is a giant booty, his contract, the one spoken about above, ya know, the $242.6 million deal, will not go into affect unless he is on their roster at the start of free agency next March, which would kick in a $37 million guaranteed in 2025.

So, while it had been an expensive couple of years, money and draft picks, it will save a ton by cutting or trading a healthy Wilson, the football player not the coconut, before the start of free agency.

63% completion, 42 tds, 19 picks 11-19 record, ouch

Edit to add, they will have a whopping $85 million dead cap hit if they release him..🤯
