Megatron’s mega-contract looms large for Lions

Detroit Lions v Oakland Raiders Getty Images

As rookie contracts spiraled out of control during the last decade under the old Collective-Bargaining Agreement, the Lions hamstrung themselves by devoting big money to bad draft picks like Charles Rogers and Joey Harrington. Fortunately for Lions fans, the team eventually started devoting big money to good draft picks like Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and Ndamukong Suh, and those players are a big part of the reason the Lions are no longer picking near the top of the draft.

The bad news, however, is that Johnson, Stafford and Suh were Top 2 picks in the final three years before the new rookie wage scale was implemented, and that means the three of them have massive contracts that leave the team without a lot of salary cap flexibility elsewhere. And as Johnson enters the final year of his rookie deal, the Lions desperately want to sign him to a long-term contract that both ensures he’ll spend the prime years of his career in Detroit and frees up some cap space.

As the second overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft, Johnson signed a six-year contract worth up to $64 million, and unlike the first overall pick that year, JaMarcus Russell, Johnson has actually played well and earned many of the incentives that push up the total value of the deal. Johnson’s cap number for 2012 is more than $21 million, which comes from a $14 million base salary, a $4.5 million roster bonus due next week, and more than $2.5 million in bonuses that were part of the incentives he earned last season and will count against the cap this season.

With that cap number the Lions would be devoting 15-20 percent of the projected 2012 salary cap to one player, which will make it extremely hard for the Lions to spend elsewhere. That’s why, as Tim Twentyman writes at the Lions’ official website, most of the front office’s focus over the next week will be on getting a new deal done with Johnson. The Lions would absolutely love to work out a long-term extension with Johnson before free agency starts on March 13, and to structure the contract so that most of the cap hit comes later.

The question is whether Johnson has any incentive to do that. From Johnson’s perspective, he could easily decide to simply play out the final year of his contract, pocket the $18.5 million the team owes him this year, and then hit free agency a year from now.

At that point, the Lions would either have to offer him a franchise tender of more than $25 million (120 percent of his 2012 cap number) for 2013, or let him become an unrestricted free agent. It sounds crazy to think the Lions would even consider letting Johnson get away in free agency, but that franchise tender is enormous. Just as the Texans decided this year that they simply couldn’t afford the franchise tender for the 2006 No. 1 overall pick, Mario Williams, the Lions would have a very hard time affording the franchise tender for the 2007 No. 2 overall pick, Johnson. Those high picks from the days before the current rookie wage scale are going to be very costly to keep in place with the franchise tag, and the Lions will face the same issue in the years ahead with Stafford and Suh.

So that’s why the Lions want to get a new contract for Johnson wrapped up now, and why it’s their main focus for the next week. Compared to where the franchise was before he arrived, Johnson’s contract is a good problem for the Lions to have. But it’s going to be an expensive problem to solve.

    Of course it will be expensive. He’s the best WR in the game. As long as they get him extended it will be a better deal than what they owe him over the next couple years assuming a franchise tag next year.

    Im sorry but, no one player is worth 25 mil a year. Let Calvin play out his rookie contract and find another WR. You can buy a lot of WRs for 25 mil.

  8. Stupid Raiders Fan says: Mar 6, 2012 11:00 AM

    I think this is a rare case where he will get the most money ever for his position and he will deserve it.

  9. beavertonsteve says: Mar 6, 2012 11:02 AM

    If Johnson hits free agency he will get QB money. The only was to keep him will be to break the bank or exclusive rights franchise tag him since some team will gladly give up a first and a third to sign him.

  10. jmagnet28 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:02 AM

    If there was ever a no-brainer in the history of free agency, this is it.

    “Just chuck it up there” is all that’s in the playbook for plays designed for CJ. Browning Nagle could connect consistently on a regular basis with this guy.

    Imaging what kind of “church parking lot” player he was.

    Derek- “Ok Cal, just get down there and I’ll throw it to you.”

    Cal- “No problemo.”

    Mikey- “Wait, why is it always Cal? There’s 6 of us out here you know. I may as well go home and play Tecmo Bowl.”

  11. gooboy6 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:03 AM

    FINALLY , a situation where the team needs the player more than the player needs the team. If it was the other way around, he would get released. CJ should stick it to them good

  12. kungfubillysims says: Mar 6, 2012 11:04 AM

    MDS we all know you hate the Lions and will take any available opportunity to disparage them in any possible way but how many more times is PFT going to beat this dead horse?
    I can’t even come close to counting the number of times it’s been mentioned on this site that the Lions are going to have cap problems. Even the most casual of readers of this site are very aware of this fact.
    How about another story about Suh being a dirty player instead?

  13. iplaybad says: Mar 6, 2012 11:04 AM

    This situation is funny. A former top draft choice has all of the leverage in a situation where his team decided not to do anything about his looming contract until AFTER he had a career year. In this league, it’s not often that players have the leverage. Megatron should just play out his current contract and hit the open market. He’ll find out how much he’s really worth then.

  14. lks311 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:05 AM

    No matter what comments follow about, “how the Lions are screwed with these contracts”, or “how they’re headed for a big fall”, etc. The bottom line is that figuring out how to pay talented players as opposed to having “dead money” tied up with busts, is an infinitely better problem to have.

  15. mrstinkypants says: Mar 6, 2012 11:08 AM

    I hope Calvin Johnson plays out the final year of his contract. The man deserves to be paid like a #1 at his position.

    _____________________________

    The problem with these folks that advocate a “get all you can” strategy is, that if he does get every dollar he’s really worth, he will be on a team that can’t afford to pay other key players and will be destined to lose. This guy has seen losing, and more importantly, 0-16. My guess is, he has no intention of doing that again.

    Sure, but you can still only have so many on the roster at a time, and you can only throw to one of them at a time. And none of them would be nearly as good as CJ. Which means he’s worth more than all of them combined.
    So you’d rather have 20 Yugos than one Porsche I guess.

  20. cronybomb says: Mar 6, 2012 11:21 AM

    Just imagine if this guy had a real quarterback and a decent threat opposite him for the first 4 years of his career.

  21. wingz101 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:23 AM

    Interesting situation. I think that what may hinder Johnson’s future ability to screw around with the Lions is just the outrageous amount of money he would command – not many teams will be lining up to pay a WR what amounts to QB type money and further more he would have to consider that a team paying him big cash, might have to field a QB (or OL or RB’s) not near the top echelon of the league and his production might suffer. I think in the end, he’ll end up making the same type of money as Fitzgerald and he’ll be pretty damn happy that Stafford is throwing him footballs, not Kolb (or whoever).

  22. jakek2 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:24 AM

    The only leverage the Lions have would be pointing out to Johnson that all it takes is one bad injury and the long term contract goes bye bye. As such, he should agree to a Fitz type contract. 9/$110M/$45guaranteed.

  23. clayton43 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:25 AM

    lol It gets to a point where your paying your WR … 1 player 20 percent of your payroll… get rid of him. I LOVE Calvin Johnson, dont get me wrong at all and no disputing his play….but with his one salary, you could pay for 4 pretty good WRs….There comes a point and time with every team where you have to make hard decesions and when 1 player will eat up so much of your cap … is it worth it if you dont win ? And by WIN I dont mean a 500 record or just making it to the playoffs one year.. I mean a Superbowl and i mean being a contender for the Superbowl every year. Otherwise it is useless in my opinion.

    But I wouldnt pay Bree’s 20 million a year either so I am clouded in my judgement I guess.

  25. butkus54 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:26 AM

    … I think Martin Mahew is doing and outstanding in Detroit . It’s important to this franchise to resign all its good young players. Yes it’s going to be expensive but every GM and owner in the league is facing the same problem … it’s the cost of doing business in the NFL today.
    I hope Mahew will find a way to structure a deal that will keep Calvin in Detroit for a long time.
    This team is becoming a legitimate contender in the league and I would hate to see them lose him … I don’t think my fellow long suffering Lions fans could take it!

  26. vesselsk says: Mar 6, 2012 11:28 AM

    Calvin knows what its like to be on the worst team in the NFLs modern era and I’m sure he doesn’t want that feeling again…so the choice is going to come down to this: I can make $19-$21MM in Detroit with a QB like Matt Stafford and likely be in the playoff hunt or I can make $23-$25MM on a team like the Dolphins, Browns or Cardinals with a weak QB and a country club membership going into effect February 1….

  27. godofwine330 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:30 AM

    Question:

    “Six-year contract worth up to $64 million, and Johnson has actually played well and earned many of the incentives that push up the total value of the deal”

    Is this saying that the incentives that were reached pushes the deal HIGHER than the 6yr-$64M, or is it saying that the incentives that were reached turns the “phony” money at the max $64M deal into REAL money?

    I’m just trying to make sure I understand this.

  28. trefkennedy says: Mar 6, 2012 11:48 AM

    I’ve been Megatron fan since he was drafted, mark my words he’s gonna be the 1st receiver to touch 2,000 yards in a season, he’s that powerful at wide receiver

  29. cappa662 says: Mar 6, 2012 11:50 AM

    _____-

    The Bears have paid more than 25 million dollars on 100 different WRs, and none of them combine have produced as well as Calvin Johnson did last year. If the Lions can’t afford him… the Bears need to step up and sign him.

  32. spkriegs says: Mar 6, 2012 11:55 AM

    This is a really touogh spot to be in for the Lions. In my opinion, only a QB is worth that portion of the salary cap, and the WR position is at the bottom of the list in terms of positions that are worth the really big money. But Johnson is a generational talent and defines the term “game-changer”. You can argue that it is a good problem to have, but at the same time it is a really BIG problem. I’m glad I’m not the one that has to solve it!

    I hate to say it, as a huge lions fan, but maybe trading Calvin right now could be the best option for us? Draft picks or even a couple young players in return .? We have huge holes on this team still (defense!) that need to be filled, we can nil afford to have 25 mil tied up in one guy.

    You realize Tulloch isn’t even under contract right? I also don’t know why most Lions fans are hating on Avril. He was our best defensive lineman last year. He has been progressing his entire career. He is 25 and in the prime of his career! Dont try and tell me that LoJack or Young can come in and put up the same production as him. People are hating on Avril and saying get rid of him because he wants to much. Really? He isn’t looking to get paid as a top tier guy, he is looking to be paid at that next level, where he should be. He will get a contract similar to Charles Johnson last year. People will complain about Avrils contract but then turn a blind eye to Vanden Bosh. Avril is in the prime of his career, more productive then KVB(they played almost identicle amount of snaps last season), and KVB is one of the highest paid guys on the team and his production is declining.

    Calvin is a rare, humble guy. It’s alright for the Lions to pay him big money because he’s the type of guy that will work harder because of it, not just shut it down. He’s reverse-Chris Johnson

  39. sdffa11 says: Mar 6, 2012 1:05 PM

    situations like these are rare for NFL players to hold more leverage than GMs/owners.

    if johnson and his agent were smart, they would milk this all the way. even if johnson CJ tore his ACL tomorrow, his next contract wouldnt be affected much because another team will want him enough to pay him market value, because hes that good.

  40. kal5279 says: Mar 6, 2012 1:06 PM

    CJ wants to be a Lion and loves Stafford (They spend a lot of the offseason together in GA working), hates being a loser and has already made more money than he will ever sepnd in this life. He will redo his deal to a much more team friendly number. Bank it.

    I am not saying he going to do a hugely below market deal or anything stupid (I would actually be angry if the team lowballed him) and he will get top dollar, but it will not be the cap busting number it is now. CJ’s not dumb or greedy and wants to be great in this league, he knows it takes the ability for the team to pay others.

    Make that like… 22 other NFL teams. I’m sorry but, 25 million is a little too much for one single player. A lot of teams may desire a player like Johnson but not with the pricetag that comes along with him. There are plenty of other receivers in the NFL that are damn near Johnson’s numbers for last year that are playing for much less. Like Wes Welker, Roddy White, Percy Harvin or Brandon Marshall. The only stat Johnson towers at is TD’s and that is because no one else on the team scores them.
    25 million/yr is too much for any position.

    Completely agree. Funny how many people have said Suh has made Avril better, but no one remarks how much easier a MLB’s life is behind that DL. Here’s the bottom line, in a pass happy league you don’t let young premium edge rushers hit the FA market. That’s just dumb.

    I don’t believe there to be any question whether Calvin deserves to be amongst the highest paid WR’s in the NFL – If not the top.

    The question is why the issue of salary cap amnesty was not discussed as part of the CBA last summer. The rookie contracts of 2010 and prior will continue to plague NFL teams for the next few years. Teams like the Lions, who consistently picked towards the top of the draft will be burdened by Suh, Stafford, and Johnson’s success. You can’t have building blocks if that’s all you can afford. Had these 3 players been drafted under the 2011 rookie structure, the Lions would be able to sign a few missing pieces and compete for a championship in 2012/2013. Rather, they will struggle to sign their own free agents and will likely field a team in the fall that has less talent than the last year.

    The Lions are not alone in this situation. The Ford Family has, once again, demonstrated no foresight and proven to be the worst ownership in professional sports. I blame them for not recognizing this challenge and building a contingent of support for the teams in similar situations.

    I totally agree. I’ve been posting this even prior to the new CBA being approve. I just assumed it would be written in. There could have been a declining scale applied to each contract dependent upon how many years prior to the new CBA it was initiated. Well, at least sanity prevailed among the owners who insisted a new CBA carry a rookie cap. It just hinders teams like the Lions right now.

    If your object in selecting a car is simply economy, great choice. However if your desire is high performance (as it generally is with football players), your warehouse full of Corollas simply isn’t gonna get the job done.

    The purpose of the draft is to get talent, and when you actually draft someone so good they are irreplaceable you do not send them packing to a rival over some cash. There is no one the Lions could spend the money “saved” on who can impact the team like Calvin does.

    I’d venture to say all these people clamoring for the Lions to let Calvin go are desperately hoping so that their team will have a shot at paying him that money.

    But to your analogy, the problem is you didn’t account for the fact that in teh Lion’s offense, Calvin is all 4 tires and everyone else is a spare.

    If they were the last of the pre-rookie wage scale picks, would that not hurt them? How many teams will be able to take that kind of cap hit, assuming their next deal must be substantially larger than their first?

    My suggested negotiating tactic is to tell potential free agents “You can ether stay here on a reasonable contract and have a real shot at winning, or you can just take a fat check.” I say it this way because any team that is willing to pay these guys “what they’re worth” will not be able to surround them with experienced talent. Young talent? Sure, but not experienced talent.

    The only reason he’s worth it, is because he can, with or without Stafford,(stafford helps) totally dominate defenses. Double, triple coverage, doesn’t matter.
