You know, they are going to owe him 15 million of that anyway. Might not be such a bad idea. And it might be telling what they intend to do with Bailey. Plus they wouldn;t have that money hanging around their necks after 2015 either.
Interesting idea. Why would Areoyo accept this? He's going to get more than $9M on the open market. Even if you cut that in half because of money being worth less over time, he would still get more than $15M on the open market.
