Maybe in between if Wheeler puts up big points this year though.

But I agree on Wheeler and Bogo getting money phones next year.
Wheeler led the Jets in points last year and he is right in the mix this year (he is on pace for 73 points over 82 games right now), plus any lengthy deal will be buying a lot of UFA. I really really really really doubt he signs for less than 5MM. It just isn't going to happen. The Kane and Toby deals are probably the top end framework.
