this kind of deal at any price and that does not even speak to his history with injuries and his lack of size/age on a very small team to begin with.
You want a new gm/coach deciding this players fate here and you give that money to Parrish if your going to give it to anyone.
Depends on what Parrish is willing to sign for. If he's not willing to sign cheaply, then he becomes a much harder asset to move when the new GM comes in. Also, at this time in the year, Bates' contract is unlikely to have any affect on Parrish's.
