He could have got more money and less term, meaning he could have retired a year earlier. As it stands now, the last 2 seasons aren't like the usual retirement contracts, I think it's $3 million for the 5th and 6th years so he likely won't walk away. He got a limited NMC so he pretty much controls where he goes and there's a price for that. Maybe he wouldn't have been given that elsewhere. I think in the grand scheme of things this is a fair contract to both parties.
