Heck, how much risk ccoul they tolerate to lob an 8-year, $4.75-$5.25M/year deal at him. Guaranteed money? Getting a competent offensive center who is at worst a #2 for years and at best rounds into the all-situations, all-purpose #1 we saw in junior.... for 8 years? It's tempting.
At worst your #2 center? That's fairly hopeful. He wouldn't be a #2 on a good team as it stands now. He'd be best suited for a #3, easy matchup situation. In an ideal world, Grigs and Girgs both surpass the level he is at now. There is no reason to give this kid something he hasn't earned. Let him earn his money with competition chasing him down. See where he stands in two years.

Also, there is a big difference between Myers getting that big contract early and Hodgson. Myers had actually played his way into that contract. Hodgson hasn't done anything yet.
