You are going to have your income secured, especially when you are due to receive your first big paycheck.
Now that he has secured his family's lifetime income, he does not need the big paycheck anymore. So he might well sign a contract worth a bit less than he would get.
Again, not questioning him doing what he thought was right for he and his family. Yes, he might take less money to play in a situation that he enjoys. He might also accept payment in vintage bottle caps, retire and become a competitive eater, begin communicating through interpretive dance, or any number of other things that his past history doesn't logically suggest.

Personally, I think that he's going to want what most big guns want: big bucks, a solid chance at the cup, or both.
