Well sure, that's mostly what I'm saying. LA will get around a 1st and 3rd worth of value for him either way, and he'll move this summer. But I've seen suggestion of 1st + 2nd, 1st + good prospect, and I don't see it.

The guy wants to start, he's earned the opportunity. I can't imagine he would, say, resign with LA under the assumption he'd get traded in time, because he hasn't been yet. He's got some leverage now and I'd imagine Lombardi wants to move on it before JB feels the need to use it.

So I'm just saying I think offer sheet is a very very real possibility, and that probably moves the trade discussions along a bit quicker for LA.
