no one's questioning Sully's contribution when he came back...but can you honestly say you weren't a little nervous every time he took a hit or stretched for a pass? How much more nervous would you be if you knew he was signed for two years?

and as far as the money, Sully has shown no indication of taking any kind of "home-town discount." In fact, his intention seems to be, "See what I can get, and if Nashville can keep pace, great...if not...see ya"

For the same money, doesn't it seem to make more sense to sign someone younger and less risky?
