Random question, but if a UDFA just completely balls out, are they eligible for a fresh, brand-new full contract?

If so, they could make so much fucking money in their career. They'd get to skip the entire rookie contract years.

That said, with a guy like this, if he were to ball out, I'd structure his deal almost entirely on incentives based on playing time.

His 2021 Highlights aren't 4.64 slow.

He doesn't look particularly explosive off his release, but he doesn't look 4.64 (at a pro day no less) slow.

You know what? I'm going to be nice.

I do hope Justyn Ross is amazeballs. Primarily because it'd be great for the team. But a secondary reason is because of how damn happy it would make MAHOMO. I think he deserves it!

That thing was weeeeeeiiird.
Part of that was his own doing.

Not the murder link but he and his agent did threaten to hold out an re-enter the draft if any team selected him after the first round. So......nobody did.

Teams can give players extensions and a new contract even if they arenít done with their first contract. I do think Veach would be the person and be like possibly after year 2. Justyn youíve had back to back 1,000 yard seasons so weíre gonna sign you long term

Good for him.
Just hope he doesn't end up like me.

What I'm saying is, let's say by some miracle he makes the roster, and then by some other miracle he turns in a huge/promising season, he is set to become a FA unless we agree on terms for the future or franchise him.

Would be pretty strong contract leverage for a 23 year old relative to this years' 1st round draft picks, who have to wait until year 4 to negotiate.

Iím all about him getting his fill in this thread. I got mine with Joshua Williams.

If he's truly cleared then I'm glad it was the Chiefs who gave him a chance. It's a rough situation for him. Can't see it happening but what a story if he makes it.

I really wanted Isiah Weston, but he's a Brown... :-)

Oh my god LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Is the talent there? 100%, like we are talking Julio Jones type potential with worse deep speed. But you wouldn't be picking up Ross because of his speed, you'd want him for his acrobatic catching abilities and nuanced route running. He would add an entirely new element to this offense if he's physically right.

Only problem is, are teams willing to accept the very small likelihood that he could quite literally die if hit the wrong way on the field. Tough situation, regardless if he's cut or not I'm glad we are the ones to give the kid a fighting chance and at least some semblance of a pay day.

Easily the #1 guy I'll be rooting for while he's here.

Thatís why Restricted Free Agency exists. He wouldnít be eligible for UFA until after year 4.

Yeah, did RFA just cease to exist?
