You shouldn't be concerned with the 3 year deal. It could be a 10 year deal and it wouldn't matter.
If there is little to no guaranteed money, the team can walk away from the contract whenever they want. That's the trick to any NFL contract, not simply the years.
If anything, the years piece is for the player's security, if such a thing exists in this case.
Sure, I think we all get that.
But if you are routinely giving seasoned veterans like Murry, Jones and Floyd one year deals, not to mention the cast of thousands huddling on the bottom of the roster ... a 3 yr deal is odd.
Tagaloa sounds like fodder ... looks like fodder. Outside of enraging Trekgeekscot ... doesn't seem to have much value ... not sure why he rates an exception to his contract (worthless piece of paper that it is).
You're digging too deep. All of the futures contracts are multi year deals and most of them are camp fodder.
The key to ALL contracts is guaranteed money, period. Floyd's contract isn't for more years becuz of the amount of guaranteed money the team was willing to pay, not becuz neither party wanted a longer deal.
The fact that nobody is talking about how much money was guaranteed on this guy's contract should let you know it's probably around 50k. That's bubblegum machine money to an NFL team.
The fact that you find it odd is becuz you're looking to make sense of it, compared to elite free agent contracts. I'm suggesting you dont.
