He has a .74 PPG average over the last 3 seasons.

To give him 5 years and 5 million dollars is not paying too much for him. I'd say not more than 5 years because of his injuries, because as he gets older it's going to be harder to get back quicker like he usually does.

This season should not be and will not be the only season they look at when they offer him an extension.

Is that a better arguement?
It's a good description of Callahan. It doesn't, however address the question, "You do not think that they could be just as mediocre without him?"

It's less about Callahan and more about the state of this franchise.
