Mike Reilly and the Utah Raptors organization appear unable to come to terms on a deal during the exclusive negotiations period. The Raptors are aid to have offered Reilly $2 millions per year, but the star quarterback wants more than that to avoid the open mark
Reilly completed 59.1-percent of his passes this past season for 3,469 yards and 24 touchdowns with six interceptions, that despite not having many big weapons around him on the offense.
The Raptors traded for Ryan Nassib in the middle of last season and he is set to make $1.7 million, but the Raptors have been willing to pay Reilly more than Nassib. However, the $2 million per year appears to not be deemed suitable for Reilly to miss the opportunity to hit the open market.
The Raptors are still expected to leave an offer on the table for Reilly, but at 33-years-old, a four-year deal worth $3 million per year does not seem like something the team really wants to give.
“Mike is a great quarterback but he earned the right to test the free agent market and is interested in that, but we are still in discussions with him and his agent and by no means is the Reilly era door closed for us at this moment,” Head Coach Ken Norton, Jr. said.
