No, you sign an OL with a very high ceiling to a long term contract before he gets too expensive. Willie himself has stated they need to get the young guys (Steinbach and Jones) signed first before they discuss a contract with him. How many years does Willie have left? I'd hate to see Willie go, since he stuck with the team through the horrible years...but it's a business. You have to sign players based on what's in your head, not your heart.
