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.
I agree the term is a year too long, but in 6 years the cap will be a lot higher and this won't hurt as much. And if Redden didn't have question marks, he would have been a LOT more expensive. I for one believe a guy like Redden will fit in well with the team culture, and he will make Staal a better player over time as well.
