Assuming this "rumor" is true, I hardly see it being a ploy to get Stepan to sign.
It is an example of a former "homegrown darling" who found himself on the outs and was moved. Part of the reason he wound up overpaid was because he fought for every dollar every time his was up. Something you can't blame him for doing. And ultimately his production is on him. But it also could be used to send a message of "don't think your number is in the rafters yet kid".
