I'd give Weaver two years. We're not going to be competitive anyhow in the next 2 years. Then his deal rolls off with Milton's deal.
The team has enough revenue to absorb Weaver for 2 years. Supposedly they offered 3 to Morris.
Offering Weaver 2 years might give us the edge to sign him, and if he bounces back, you enjoy the reward for 2 years. If he flops, you're really no worse off than not signing him.. Sure, it costs payflex, but it's not like we don't have the money.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
