It doesn't have to be big. I would guess that it would be north of what Tarell Brown got last year (5 years/$8.1 Million) . . . maybe 5 years - $10-12 Million with a decent signing bonus accelerated to this year so if he ends up tanking they can cut their losses. A nice raise but not too crazy.
I really hope so. i would wait til after this season to sign him. Rewarding guys for one good season tends to lead them to thinking they are great and they seem to work less and under perform. Like they extended Parys way too soon. Same thing happened with Brandon Moore. Even Brown got an extension without earning it. I wouldn't be mad about a contract set up like you described at all. anything more than that imo is a mistake at this point. Make the guy go out there and earn it on a consistent basis, and not let one season dictate extensions. Once he does that then pay him.
The man is the truth. Hes much more valuable than Brown and Parys in my opinion.
Hes more productive too
