Bud Dupree is having a wonderful season.
He’s surpassed his career high sack total. He’s likely going to get to double-digits. He’s been a fabulous run defender.
He’s going to get paid.
He’s got 8.5 sacks right now. Let’s say he doesn’t get another sack. What’s that net him in the free agent market?
Preston Smith signed a four-year 52-million dollar deal this offseason. His career high in sacks coming into the year was 8. Oh no.
Za’Darius Smith signed a four-year 66-million dollar deal in free agency. His career high in sacks was 8.5.
Bud Dupree is going to make some cash money. The Steelers probably can’t afford him. The Steelers can’t afford to lose him.
