So following the 40/60/80 model he would be due around 6 million in 2014. If he got 10 million in 2014 that would make him a 25 million a year player on a worth basis. Based on his usage and performance so far I don't see him coming close to that.
He still gets the $3 Million he would have gotten as well plus his already committed annual $1.25 deferred signing bonus paid each November. Gotta count all the cash.
