That's my thinking as well. The issue is the dollar figure. I have no issue with a 5 year, $25M deal if he continues like he has. If he doesn't progress and stays as is, he is probably overpaid by $1M-$1.5M, but if he can improve some, I think it is a solid contract. I just don't see him becoming an elite offensive guy, or a great 2-way guy, so $6M and over I think will always be an overpayment. Young D are so hard to predict though.
