All-Star first baseman Wil Myers and the Padres have agreed on a six-year extension, the team announced Tuesday.
The deal is worth a franchise-record $83 million, FanRag Sports reported, citing unidentified sources.
We’re excited to secure a player with talent like Wil’s for the next six years, Padres general manager A.J. Preller said in a statement. Wil has shown that he wants to be in San Diego and wants to be a Padre, and he is going to be an integral part of our team and the community as we continue to build a championship club.
The Browns are also willing to eat as much as half of Osweiler’s $16 million contract in a trade scenario. Kay Cabot noted.
While that seems like a smart move by the Browns, it’s unlikely.
Several NFL personnel executives say they doubt anyone will give the Browns a third-round pick for Osweiler and pay him $8 million a year, Kay Cabot wrote. If that could’ve been done, the Texans would’ve done it, they say.
The more likely scenario for the Browns is that they cut Osweiler and someone signs him for about $4 million a year. With offset language in his contract, that would reduce the price of the move up to somewhere between 33 and 64 to about $12 million.
