My question would be...Is this a more certain talent than Okung for around the same $$??
Doubt it personally.
Okung at the same money? Where did you ever get that notion?
In this market, Okung will get $12million APY. If Matt Kalil gets $11million, Okung clearly gets more. Plus this speculation assumes that Okung would have any interest in resigning with the team
Plus, the max Joeckel can receive is $8million - it appears to be an incentive laced deal.....
This is a great "buy low" deal - Joeckel still has all of the physical tools to make him the #2 overall pick. I would be upset if the Seahawks threw money on a long term deal at any of the other available OL that have signed. Some really bad deals going down today. This is not one of them.
Sorry. No way in hell Okung gets $12 million, he made $8M last season and was released. You have to assume as a team that they do make the incentives when it comes to accounting for cap space.
