This offer sheet is great for you guys and don't be delusional about trading him after one year. Here is why I think he wants to play in Nashville:
- He probably heard he is being shopped and with the frustration of the negotiations going nowhere decided to the make the first move and chose where he wants to play : Philly or Nashville
- If the return of 2 1sts, 2nd and 3rd is true, then it adds motivation for Nashville to match and it is low value for Weber
- If the report is true, the contract is heavily front-loaded. This means that he gets payed early on (money in the bank is always better than potential money in the future) exactly during his time in Nashville if it matches. So that is about 1/4 of the contract gone in the first year. That means that the rest of the years are fairly cheap for a player of his calibre. Would you really trade him then because he signed the offer sheet, just as the contract becomes great money wise?
I think some of you, who claim he wants out, need to examine the situation again.
