I think we just have to trust Tallon on this one. He knows what's really going on more than anyone else. He doesn't seem at all concerned that Weiss will leave. I think he sees Weiss as an integral piece of the team moving forward and he'll pay him accordingly. As opposed to Garrison, who was very much an unknown after only one big year.
Weiss is not Bouw or Garrison. Bouw was indecisive since Day 1 and Garrison wasn't really much better. If Weiss wanted to leave, he would have left when Tallon offered it to him. Why would he leave now? I don't see any teams massively overpaying for Weiss like in the form of 6+M, so we should be able to keep him. If Weiss really is seeking something ridiculous, which we wouldn't be able to afford, then I'm sure Tallon will trade him at the deadline. But I think they both see eye to eye on what his next contract will be.
