Was my initial thought, too, but if you look at the structure of the contract, while they obviously have the option of matching the contract, there is no reasonable way to do so. Philly knows it, the agent's know it, and Weber knows it. It might not have been about "the" place to play as much as "one of" the places, but it does look like it's about not only maxing salary dollars as well as "brand Shea", but making sure Nashville really can't exercise their rights and Weber gets out, gets rich, is protected in case of another concussion, and is competitive for a cup.

I wanted to see the kids get a chance, guess we're going to.
