Who knows maybe with the pressure of a contract year off of him maybe Chimera will find his game again. He may just be the reverse of most players who seem to light it up on contract years. Stranger things have happened.
It wouldn't surprise me if Howson wanted to get this off the table quicky, since I suspect this was a fairly simple negotiation. Chimmer knows his role, knows he isn't gonna make big bucks, and probably took the first fair offer. Plus, in the scope of free agent signings/potential deadline moves, Chimmer is lower on the list of importance. Doesn't surprise me that there wasn't much mention of it.
