This D Jax thing is a big deal.


It seems to me that Reggie may have hit an unexpected crossroads this off-season. Reg has had this veteran, winning presence FA strategy all planned out. The Veldheer /Saffold thing may have been bungled but, his plan was still coming together nicely. He made the big dollar per year contract to Jared Allen but it was still a low risk cap strategy. Acquiring Jackson is shaping up to be something much different. This is going to require a big investment for 4-5 years.

This reminds me of a high draft pick in the old CBA. Pay big and guarantee a bunch of cash, and we'll see what you get. I know Jackson is a proven commodity but who's to say in two years he wont be declining and brooding and we're tied to him for 2 more years or his dead money.

There is obviously something special about his talents when you consider that most teams have made their beds so to speak as far as cap space goes. Yet so many seem to be clamoring to change those plans, cut guys, restructure guys to find a way to get him in. I can tell he is good, but that is some real affirmation of his game changing abilities.

It looks like its going to be an all-in bidding war scenario. In some ways this is Reggie's biggest decision yet. How many salaries can you maintain like that? Do you want Jackson taking up one of those coveted spots? It appears many teams do. Does Reggie?
