Edler is 26 while Bieksa is 31. It's reasonable to expect Bieksa will start to fade in performance sooner than Edler.

Bieksa plays a defensive role vs tougher opposition, but there will always be that doubt as to whether he would do well in this capacity without Mitchell and Hamhuis as a partner.

Bieksa makes 4.6 mil, he is older and probably has a lower ceiling than Edler. For that reason I can see Edler being paid 5.5 . 6 would be harder to justify. And above 6 is impossible.

Five yrs at 5.5 would be fair for both parties.
