The topic has nothing to do with talking to him...... rather would YOU want him back next year or not? For how much, and why?? None of which you answered.
To me, tagging him is absolutely out of the question. Adam Schefter has stated that his franchise tag # would be $15.3 Million.
That's way above reasonable in my book, and in no way is Jake worth that much. ESPECIALLY since he hasn't stayed healthy in 2+ years.
Anyone who signs this guy to a big money, long term contract should be terminated. Heís declined the past 3 years, he canít stop the speed rushers anymore, and now heís injury prone. His days of being an elite LT are over.
