But a $13M player isn't going to sign for years 2-7 for $1M per. Even if he'd drop to $5M you're asking him to risk $30M. I can't imagine anyone taking that kind of risk. I wouldn't, and I can't imagine an agent who is making a living on taking a percentage of that money is going to let his client go that route.
Just my take, if anything has become obvious throughout these negotiations it's that there's no way to guess what any of these yokels will do!
