Nightcap - Deshaun Watson's $230M Contract, Patrick Mahomes' $210M Contract and Nick Chubb's Gruesome Injury
Shannon Sharpe and Chad Johnson dive into the hottest topics from the NFL this week. They discuss the unfortunate injury to Nick Chubb, drawing parallels to Napoleon McCallum's injury and Chubb’s last knee injury which also happened when the Cleveland Browns played the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unc and Ocho emphasize the importance of running backs seeking better compensation and long-term security. Also, they scrutinize the Cleveland Browns' decision to give Deshaun Watson a fully-guaranteed $230 million contract which has only produced an underwhelming performance from Watson. Is Deshaun living up to the franchise QB status? Shannon and Chad bring up another struggling quarterback, rookie Bryce Young of the Carolina Panthers. While they acknowledge his rough start, they also express optimism about his potential once he gains more experience and better weapons. Lastly, they touch on Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes' historic payday with a massive restructuring deal, making him the highest-paid player over a four-year period in NFL history, giving him $210.6 million between 2023 and 2026.
