Correct, but do not fail to leave out the rest of the facts. His contract also precludes us from Franchising him at the end of his contract, so if he does not renegotiate this year he will play out this contract and hit the open market. Then we either pay him top dollar or lose him for pretty much nothing in return but a compensatory pick in the end of the 3rd round at best.
