David Harris' New Contract now has a precedent
Houston has extended MLB DeMeco Ryans and this could be a huge factor into what David Harris will ask for in contract negotiations this upcoming year. Ryans does have 2 pro-bowls over Harris & twice as many tackles, but they are on the same level in most people's opinions along w/Beason & Willis.
FActor in we also have All-Pros Mangold and Revis w/Pro-Bowler D'Brick also due, Jets' payroll is gonna get tight. I have faith Tanny can work it out
DeMeco Ryans-LB-Texans Mar. 30 - 5:08 pm et
Texans signed ILB DeMeco Ryans to a six-year, $48 million extension. The deal was first reported by beat writer John McClain, though ESPN's Adam Schefter had the particulars.
The contract includes a whopping $21.75M guaranteed and $26.3M in the first three years, including a $7.5M signing bonus and $7M base salary in 2010. A two-time Pro Bowler and captain of the Texans' improving defense, Ryans rivals Jon Beason as the second-best young MLB in the game behind Patrick Willis. The 25-year-old did well to match Karlos Dansby's guaranteed money with the Dolphins. He and Brian Cushing should be one of the top linebacking tandems for years to come.
