He will get his money, if he recovers 100%. I have seen it before, they will franchise him this year because it tables the risk until next offseason when he should be healthy. Then, if he gets back to that 100% which I still do not think he showed this year, he will make elite LT money. It does destroy his ability to get the long term contract done before this season IMHO.
