Seemed, and still seems, entirely plausible. And even if it wasn't exactly $1.5M, are you really suggesting that it was vastly lower than that? And if so, who are you getting your reliable information from?
No, "Word has it" is just a nice way to say a rumor. And rumors are rumors, no matter which way you paint it. If Eklund reported that, would you treat it the same?

As for what I'm suggesting, see above. Either JR never actually budged from his initial offer, or he did far too late in the negotiation process in an attempt to save face.
