If you could get him for $5 million plus first and third round picks, I think a lot of teams would look at that (especially teams who will likely be drafting in the bottom part of the first round).

That said, I think it's a good bet that Philly matches $5 million/year if they were willing to sign him at $4.2 million/year. It's unlikely they topped out what they were willing to pay to keep him around.
I agree with you that he could be a 60-65 point player, but then that's essentially what you'd be paying him as. He's not there yet.
