The one were the cap is going down, you have an injury history, have consistently been given up on by past teams and have never produced like that before.

Tell him he gets his money when e can show a repeat in his performance. Maybe that means waiting till later in this year to sign the contract (if he continues to produce, pay the man). But, personally, I am of the opinion that you want to sign guys like this to a short contract with a smaller raise as a "show me" and then give them a bigger pay day.
