Update: Hall did end up getting 100% of his third-year salary guaranteed, which is a trend we likely will see more often moving forward.
Jets guaranteed 100% of Hall’s 3rd-year salary, per source. A year ago, 36th pick got only 58% guarantee in year 3. This was sticking point with Hall, but new trend is 100% for high 2nd rounders (see: Jalen Pitre, Texans, picked 1 spot after Hall). Jets have high hopes for Hall. https://t.co/F0kwQDnh9t— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) July 19, 2022
Update: Breece Hall just ended the shortest holdout ever, as he has signed his rookie deal with the Jets and will report to camp on time, per Ian Rapoport.
The New York Jets will be without their second-round pick as rookies report on Tuesday, as his deal has yet to be completed, per ESPN’s Rich Cimini. With rookie contracts salary-capped since 2011, holdouts have become a thing of the past, but there is still wiggle room for players when it comes to guaranteed money and offset language.
Hall is likely to have a big workload his rookie year, and Hall’s agent probably wants to maximize all aspects of his contract using that probability. Another reason Hall’s agent might be looking for more guaranteed money is the Texans gave safety Jalen Pitre three years guaranteed money, which has shifted the market for second-round draft picks.
A deal will likely be done sooner than later, but there’s no doubt the team would like to get their starting running back into camp as soon as possible. While Hall is out, Michael Carter will serve as RB1.
