Much as well depends on the cap going up and the cap space we create--Drury, etc. I'd say yes--but have some reservations about the terms of the contract.
Ditto, except I'm also favor of 4 years at only a max $6 base.
The key will be if Richards wants max $$$ or lion's share of max $$ and increased cup chance by giving team more cap compliant options.
I don't know they'll do it, but the fair thing would be to make a very, very easy base of 3.5m just to show up, another 1.5m is easy to earn bonus and additional bonus of another 4m or so, but those are harder targets to earn.
Still, if earns it, great.
If he turns into Drury 2.0, then under this scenario we'd have him at only $4m or under per, half of what he may actually sign for.
