NFL Market Share Production

tj-mcdonald

Metric Recommendation: T.J. McDonald should be considered one of the best strong safeties in the NFL. Having a great combination of production and athleticism. McDonald does lack certain athletic qualities in speed that prevent him from being truly elite. However, signing a play of his caliber can instantly upgrade about 75% of current NFL rosters. Thus, I’d recommend a salary of 5,990,625 to 7,105,978 adjusting to the NFL salary cap increase.

That is near elite strong safety money. Which is what I would consider McDonald going forward.
