This deal doesn't buy any UFA years though, which probably helped keep the cost down.

Plus it's Regier. He's excellent at getting good value 2nd contracts. Drew Stafford's 2nd contract for instance was 2 years, 1.8M per. The only 2 times he didn't was the Vanek fiasco and when he locked up Myers long-term (and Myers isn't a terrible deal by any means)...but otherwise he gets great numbers on short-term 2nd contracts, that end in RFA status. It's definitely one of his strengths.
