I'll be very happy with anything 4.25M and less...
I'm starting to think that as well.

I'm almost to the point where I might offer him 7 years (taking him to age 34, and subsequently 1 more contract before he is susceptible to the over 35 rules) and hope to get him at 3.8 or less. I would NOT give a NMC or NTC with that deal though.
