Jeffery needs to prove he can stay healthy if he wants top money. If he plays well but misses a bunch of games then we will be back to where we are now; trying to decide his value.

I still think he'll sign an extension this off season before the deadline. If he doesn't and like you say has a season dogged by injury then I can see them letting him walk, even more so if Kevin White produces this season.

Eddie Royal is going nowhere as his 4.5m salary is fully guaranteed. On the plus side if he crashes this year too we can cut him next off season for no dead money
Learn something new every day, I'd never realised that you got that option with 1st round draft picks.

Yes, I couldn't see us offloading Royal with that amount guaranteed.

Yeah it was introduced as part of the last CBA. Not cheap mind, I think OL players commanded around the $10m mark for 5th year options this year.
