Is future considerations just another way of saying “nothing”?  I kind of always assumed this as it is hard to quantify a consideration.

sounds like it. most likely a goodwill move so he can announce his retirement as a shark.

Definitely a good-will move.

Nice that Tampa & San Jose are showing him the respect he’s earned, he deserves to have his retirement announcement be an “event” in San Jose.
