As the 2022 offseason sets to begin in a couple of weeks, which players are set to reset their respective markets with large contract extensions?

The 2022 NFL offseason is set to bring massive contract extensions from a ton of positions.  Typically, we see contracts reset their respective markets every season, and this season will be no different.

There are a few players who are either free agents or up for extensions that will have a chance to reset their respective positions’ contract market.

What will these massive contracts look like, and which teams are going to pay up that massive amount?

Fortunately, we content creators don’t have to go about guessing too much with these contracts.

We can reasonably project where some of these contracts will fall, especially with the help of a popular contract website,

So, let’s take a look at a few players who can reset their respective markets.

NFL Offseason 2022: Players who will reset their markets

Davante Adams, WR

Davante Adams is set to be a free agent, but it is unlikely that a team not named the Green Bay Packers sign him.

Adams has spent his entire career with the Packers, catching passes from the back-to-back MVP in Aaron Rodgers, who is also up for an extension.

On the surface, one would think that the Packers, who are still over the cap, will not be able to re-sign both Rodgers and Adams, but extending players typically creates cap space, so the Packers will probably be able to do both contracts if Aaron Rodgers elects to remain in Green Bay.

Adams is set to enter his age-29 season, so he is getting up there in age.

My theory with this contract is that it will be signed at the same length that an Aaron Rodgers contract would be signed.

I think Aaron Rodgers remains in Green Bay on a 3-year extension, and I think that is what they would give Adams.

Davante Adams has 8,121 career receiving yards in 8 seasons to go with 73 touchdowns.

At this point, Adams is widely considered the best wide receiver in the NFL, and he is poised to sign a record-breaking wide receiver contract.

The current leader in average annual value is DeAndre Hopkins, and I think Adams will be able to hit $30 million in average annual value.

I think this will be a 3-4 year pact as well, so the total money would be somewhere around $90-$120 million.
