Well I was thinking the agent would use it as a bargaining chip. He could try to ask for the full 21.5, but this way he builds good will, avoids having to move, gets signed now, and looks like a good guy.

As to the rest of your post, This offer probably screws more than 3 teams. It probably screws all teams that depend on good drafting and building plans. The ones who try to do it the right way, in a fiscally responsible manner and try to maintain success. It also really shortens windows of opportunity for winning.
