I hear what your saying Viper. I am all for giving guys chances and hoping they exceed your expectations. My concern is that 6.5 mill for 6 Years isn't a contract you give out to someone you "hope" works out. You wanna give a player a 1 year deal worth 5 mill and hope he regains his previous form that is fine. Commiting to a player for 6 years at that price however is a pretty significant risk. The term of the contract is really what concerns me more than anything.
