While I think Brown has more natural talent, it hasn't really translated into a vastly superior amount of production.

I'd be really shocked if Callahan's next contract wasn't right in line with Brown's.
Same yearly cap hit? Fine with me. 8 years? No way. I just think theres a very very small chance that Callahan is a productive player into his mid 30's. Nothing against him, but his style of play will catch up with him eventually. I'd hate for it to be in the middle of an 8 year contract.
