I am currently split 50/50 over the following two options:

a) Give him the following QO: $3.25M/1yr
b) Let him walk / trade him for whatever draft pick he would command

I sure wouldn't be offering a long-term deal. Choosing between the two options would come down to how our payroll is shaping up after we get our defense all signed, and a serious evaluation of the UFA market as it evolves over the next couple of weeks. It really doesn't matter to me what AK's status is after the 1-year. I'm already prepared to lose him for nothing now, if it comes to that. The modern market doesn't make that a particularly troublesome issue.
