The Marty Lounge>To extend Tyrann or not to...

Tyrann posted something interesting today...


You cannot show me that Iím an option, Iíll show you I have others...

Sorry, not sure how to embed from iPhone.

That tweet can mean many things, but it could be correlated to his contract negotiations for an extension in KC that Veach has mentioned is a priority this offseason. It could be related to a relationship, family member, bowling league or wing eating contest.

Itís plausible that the tweet is a public response to the team not wanting to pay a massive AAV to re-sign Tyrann and using other free agent and draft options as reasons they donít NEED to re-sign him (this is business, nothing more) to try to drive down the price.

Letís talk about it...

Some pros of extending his contract:

Clears a nice chunk of cap space this offseason.
Keeps a leader in the locker room as well as in the secondary.
Continues to provide the defense with a guy that consistently takes the ball away.

Some cons to an extension for Tyrann:

Once he loses a step, heís not going to be nearly as effective at his size, heís already not a burner. He will still be good due to prep snd instincts, but will be beaten more once he loses a step.
Any extension would start after he turns 30. Heís currently signed through age 29 this year.
Judging from his last contract negotiation with us, he wants top of the market money. Most likely a 3 year extension. Something close to 3/48. If structured right, Iíd extend him for 3 years...even at that price. The structure would need to give the team options if he falls off.

He's a safety....not a QB.

Losing him would sting a little but you move on.

Chiefs have Mahomes...things aren't what they used to be.
I think Tyrann is integral to this defense and this team. Get him locked in longer please. They already let the most underrated player on the D go in Wilson. We don't need a reminder of what a poor Defense like Sutton D was like.
Mahomes is great but he doesn't play D and can't do it all. Remember the SB?

He's a pretty key piece imo... I'd try to extend.

That said, it's a really solid safety draft in the middle rounds if Veach decides not to.

I’ll be pretty pissed if Mathieu leaves before Clark.

Although if they don’t extend Mathieu before the draft....I could see them grabbing a safety pretty high. Maybe Trevon Moehrig at #31.

Lol at everyone thinking Mathieu won’t be extended ��

What does this mean?

I hate to break y’all heart but I will not be wearing #7. I have other plans, just stay on this journey with me it will all make sense. Every # is a personal choice & one that will tell a story.

Freak out thinking he wants 21m per year because he wants to wear #21.

Go ahead.

Freak out.

He literally mentioned it like 5 posts above yours thatís heís switching jersey number to 21. His mento was Pat P so he wants to honor him. I think Charles Woodson too

In his press conference today he says that he is not worried about money or any personal stats. Said that he doesn't know if there have been any conversations between the Chiefs and his agent as his agent would not call him or let him know anything until it was completed.
All those tweets had nothing to do with the speculation.

He said he’s optimistic about a deal and says he wants to be a Chief for life
