Welp, what a bad 15 minutes on Twitter if everything comes to fruition of these tweets.
Ravens expected to sign Cardinals S Tony Jefferson barring any last-minute negotiating snags, per @diannaESPN and me.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2017
The Cardinals had tried to keep Jefferson in house, but could not get a deal done, without knowing the financial aspect, we cannot speculate, but it sure seems like the deal should be over $6 million a season, based on what we heard was the Cardinals had been offering.
For Jefferson, it is about finally get what he felt he has deserved since he entered the draft and that is a payday and recognition for his ability one the field.
He has bee considered one of the better safeties in the NFL per Pro Football Focus the last couple of years, so it is not surprising to see him finally cash in. Let’s see how this works out and good luck to Tony Jefferson moving forward.
