Good! I drafted him in my fantasy lineup and it would have been terrible if they could not come to terms.

$4MM a season…. wasn’t that what nearly everyone predicted it would end up being? Seems like it took way too much time and ill will to get to the obvious middle ground.

I didn’t draft him because of this. Hopefully I don’t regret it.
