You can't sign a guy that long term hoping for him to give you something in the first couple years of the contract only. Well we can thank our lucky stars we have a buyout coming. He won't get bought out though until after next season though(I believe that is when we can still do it)
I said the same thing. I was excited to have him for 4 years, after that I was beyond worried. 32 years old. 7 years left after this one.
