Yes, big concern until you look at past history and realize that a huge proportion of RFAs don't sign until right before arbitration. They have no reason to, an RFA player has no leverage right now, and no advantage to signing right now unless the offer on the table is a clear overpayment (even then, there's not really an advantage for them to sign right now unless they think that offer will disappear for some reason).
