This is the bold move that has to be made. You have to part with players you like to make things happen. I like Sam but his experience, despite his age, has him primed for a big contract. In the next few years players that are remotely overpaid will be anchors. Sam returning to his historical averages carrying a 4.5 to 5 million contract is not worth the risk. Let another team justify that commitment if it's more than 4 mill.
basically all that needs to be said.
