This is certainly about the money and 2 years. It can't be about winning the cup, stars aren't close for sure. He signed quickly, so he must know this is at the high end of what he could get on the market. At 40, after a good year in the right system, and an option year, no where to go but down from here. GMDM would not match this even if Ray was willing to stay.
