Total madness.

The most money to go home is enticing but there's definitely cons to taking that kind of deal also. Eating up a 7th of your entire cap is going to have all eyes on you on that team. At least with NJ, Pit, or Detroit he can blend in a bit.
We've seen Kovy struggle under the pressure of his contract sometimes. I think Parise would too. He'd give his all every game, but when the fans eventually turn on him for not living up to his contract, he'll have some rough going.
