Like others have said a 2nd and a prospect. Then try to resign him at or around what his pay is right now

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $66,500,000; CAP PAYROLL: $69,196,944; BONUSES: $3,555,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $858,056

I gave him somewhat of a raise and Suter at that price is about right. Gives us enough room to make a call-up and we could always just waive Shelley(which I think is becoming more of a possibility)
He's going to get more than just a modest raise. He'll get at least $3m on the open market
