not what he was asking for, and not what he was being offered either. I don't know what the total is, but it's probably around $2 million more in total - I think I'd hang out at home with friends and family to get an extra $2 million too.
This was not very close to the $7.8 million (who was it, Brooks who suggested that?). I don't know if there will be players making the max in this league. It really screws with the economics of making a team.
