According to this site, Leonard Floyd's 5th year option will cost us either $12.8M or $14.2M, depending on where he fits in their position slots.

Do we pay that or let him become a FA in 2020?

That's a lot of bread. I'm thinking he's not worth it.

Discuss.

I think we should. I think he's a lot better than his sack totals. I don't let him become a FA. Pass rushers are tough to find.

First 10 picks
Quarterback $20,922,000

Imagine that in two years!

I think you try to keep him if the price is right, but that's a lot of money for a guy who is not even close to top-5 at his position. It's worth the risk of letting him walk if you can't get him for less than $13-14M for the year. Unless he has a monster year, I don't know that the market will be crazy for him, although he is in a premium position in a league with many teams lacking quality starters.

Definitely exercise the 5th year option, but the goal should be to get Floyd signed to a long term extension before the 2019 season. The Bears cannot replace Floyd's athleticism and versatility, and he really is the perfect complement to Mack.

My goal actually would be to get Floyd to sign an extension in training camp before the 2019 season starts. Get him signed before he runs into a 10 sack season in 2019 or 2020 opposite Mack and he inflates his price tag.

Yeah but they should extend him. He was balling the last half of the season.

Agreed. He's shown me he can be a great Robin to Mack's Batman, sigh him for a deal that smooths out his cap and let our defense roar

I think he's really, really good. They should extend him.

We don't have a draft pick to replace him, so I'd exercise it and try to sign him longer term. His injury history does scare me though.
