mouser can you confirm that? Ages is my weakest point of CBA understanding (evidenced by my recent Trouba mistake which mouser pointed out on the Jets forum).
They are burning a year. Thanks mouser.

Year 1: 19-20 (this season)
Year 2: 20-21
Year 3: 21-22
Year 4: 22-23
Year 5: 23-24
Year 6: 24-25
Year 7: 25-26

He'll be a UFA at age 26 if he's up for at least 40 games per year from this point on.
