3. I wouldn't have a problem giving him a contract for $5 million. Problem is he's going to get way more than that on the open market. That would be the most I'd pay him and there are teams out there that will pay him over $6 million and he's just not worth that sort of investment.
To add, it's not just the cash, but the term. He's rumored to want a minimum of 6 years. Way too much of a commitment for mush mellon.
