I think it's just people being trolls. 3 years is not a extensive contract.
Those people don't know anything. Because of his age, the only deal he could sign was for 3 years. His salary is the rookie max of 925K and he is eligible for some performance bonuses that I think can take him up to the 2.6M range.
