It doesn't. However, it does limit his options and his career plus the circumstances leading up to this in my eyes doesn't warrant this kind of contract. He can easily play well enough to ask for more and get it but that would mean earning it and his career thus far has not earned this contract given to him by Doug Wilson. Being an RFA would've meant that we would've either kept him or got something for him elsewhere whereas some people seem to think that giving him a one year deal means the team would've lost him next year.

I'd like to see someone justify this contract giving comparables and going off of his career to date.
