I'd say $13mil is the floor for Judon. I'd bet he gets $16mil, similar to ZaDarius Smith. No brainer at $40mil/4 years but there's no way he's that low imo.Barrett isn't getting out of Tampa. No way. We had our chance to sign him in FA last season and Pace blew that one.
I'd like to see Pace make a run at Matt Judon in FA and draft Alex Highsmith in the 4th or 5th round. Lose Leonard Floyd if he doesn't commit to a 4 year 28m a year deal (7m a season) and the waste of space that is Aaron Lynch. If possible I'd try and top up the OLB ranks by signing Jeremiah Attaochu on a cheap deal as well.
I think Judon is likely going to be asking for $10-13m a season. I'd be interested in him at $10-11m a season.
Vernon Butler is someone else I want the Bears to go after. Potential heir apparent to Hicks (who sadly won't last forever) and someone in the right scheme (with the right attitude) who could be devastating. This money would come from not re-signing Trevathan or Kwiatkoski. You have to make cuts somewhere. I'd roll with Roquan + KPL, Zach Brown or a draft pick and Iggy.
Imagine how devastating this DL would be - Mack, Hicks, Goldman, Butler, Judon. This is perfectly doable as long as Judon doesn't get crazy money elsewhere.
