It doesn't speak volumes at all. He is locked up till 2017. Very few players in the game who are post-arb can command contracts past that point. Just because he is not one of those guys is no reason to raise an eyebrow at the non-extension. And any speculation on those extension dollars/years is just that, speculation.
