We know his worth and he outplayed his contract. To me rewarding a player for outplaying his value sends s two messages. We’re paying a professional, because he deserves it and we’re trying to be fair. But it also sends one year phenoms a message, too.
Why? He’s still got two years left, and that last year is at a $9M price tag. Unless you’re suggesting we spread that somehow? Either way, with his age and current rate, I see no reason to mess with it, especially now that he’s in his 30’s.
Paying him what he’s worth, say giving him a bump because he deserved it…a departure but a player friendly gesture to a true pro. I am not saying redo it hut add a bonus he’s sure to reach like paying him more but not a new contract, or add a year with a big bump to spread out for a more commensurate rate.
Yeah, no. Not really in favor of that personally.
Only if the under performing players pay back some of their contract
Pay the man! He’s the best player on the team!
