Jordan may want something closer to his maximum salary of $35 million. He has discussed an extension, but he would earn less going that route; talks have stalled. “If they want me, yeah, I’d love to be here,” Jordan says. “But I don’t have an extension, do I? So we’ll see.” (Jordan is also negotiating without an agent. He parted ways with Dan Fegan, his old agent, after the Dallas hostage situation. “I haven’t had the best experiences with agents,” Jordan says.)
The veteran unfurled a catalog of sensational throws against Houston’s wanting secondary, tossing a pair of scoring bullets to Paul Richardson and a 53-yard bomb to receiver Tanner McEvoy during a game that saw both teams combine for 79 points, 988 yards and five lead changes. Wilson’s efforts are even more impressive as he’s doing this for an offense utterly bereft of a ground game.
A few weeks ago, I advised you to go out of your way to try to acquire LeSean McCoy (5.7 OTD), who had yet to score a touchdown on the season. Two games later, McCoy has three scores under his belt. Though he’s quickly wheeling in his OTD, it’s worth noting that Mike Tolbert (2.5 OTD, one TD) is going to vulture touchdowns if his current usage keeps up.
McCoy has seven carries inside the opponent’s 7-yard line, and Tolbert is just behind with four. McCoy entered 2017 as a strong bet for touchdown regression to the mean after he scored 13 times last season despite a 6.9 OTD. He has overcorrected a bit out of the gate this season. Expect the touchdowns to keep rolling in as the season progresses.
