I'm quite sure that many teams in the league would have paid him well over $6M, but he realizes the benefits of being part of a great team over the long term. And he's already made almost $20M in his career, so his great-great grandkids are already well taken care of by this contract...
When talk broke that they were planning to extend him I fully expected something over 6.5. 5.2 is wonderful. Ill be jumping off the hate train at that price. Ive seen the 5 got us, so if hes making slightly more, and plays better, whats to hate? Hes played better as of late, but 11 more years at a similar rate is fine with me
