The bill wants to sign a long-term agreement with Josh Allen, and Josh Allen wants to sign a long-term agreement with these bills. The bill is not in a hurry to reach an agreement because they know they can exercise their fifth-year option to ensure that the quarterback stays in Buffalo at least until the 2022 season.
But the fifth-year selection may be more urgent to complete the transaction before the 2022 season, because Bill has two players selected in the first round of the 2018 draft.
The team must exercise the fifth-year option on Allen and Tremaine Edmunds by May 3. Allen’s fifth-year option is worth $23.106 million, and Edmunds’s option is worth $12.716 million.
General Manager Brandon Beane said via NFL Media: “The simplest answer is that we have to wait until the draft is finalized before we can resolve it.” “We had some discussions, but in fact, once the draft is completed, this Will become a top priority.
“The most difficult part of this year will be that the ceiling has dropped. [we] I don’t know what it will be next year, and it may not increase much. Because of the Pro Bowl, Josh’s number is in his 20s. Tremaine has won several Pro Bowl Awards and his score is 13. You can’t really use these caps flexibly, so we have to make sure that we choose both caps at the same time, so the next one will have an annual cap of nearly 35 million. Choosing them from them without extending them is not an ideal solution, so we just want to figure out how to make it work in our system. But once the draft is over, we will get the answer. “
There is no decision yet: the bill will be chosen for the two players. However, the change of collective bargaining agreement makes the fifth-year option fully guaranteed once it is exercised.
The ideal plan for the bill is to complete a long-term transaction with the two companies sometime next year.
