To answer your question. Yes, it is undervaluing him. As someone else said, I don't think we will sign him to a 1 year deal (allowing him to be an UFA after next year). We will offer him something much longer, otherwise we trade him. Let's think of it this way: If he signs an offer sheet elsewhere, we will get 4 first round picks. So, I'd say we should at least get 2 or 3 players that are worthy of being considered first round picks PLUS an actual first round pick.
I think what people are resenting is that he's implying that despite what we say and think, there's good information out there to suggest that Weber won't sign a long term deal, or that Weber fits the mold of the people we've allowed to walk. I don't think either statement is accurate, and it is insulting to suggest otherwise.
