Based on apparent Weber's desire to get paid early, I'd guess that his signing your hypothetical 13yr/$100mil deal would depend on structure. It's just like the reports that Suter agreed to term and total dollars earlier last season .... that's great, but, did they ever agree upon contract structure? Tossing around generic terms and averaged numbers is great, but, when it comes down to it these deals depend on details and money in any given calendar / season year. Weber's offer is $7.85mil per year when looked at on average ... which is VERY reasonable. The problem is it's $27mil in the first 49 weeks ... a hellish amount to cough up in such a short time span.
